The management of government employee housing has been centralised within the Department of Housing and Public Works as part of a commitment to effective and consistent management of the portfolio.
In January 2014, responsibilities for maintenance and improvements to employee housing were transferred from a range of agencies to the Department of Housing and Public Works. On 1 July 2014, the ownership of all general employee accommodation residences was transferred to the department.
Through its core function of overseeing and maintaining a range of government built assets, the department is ensuring that investment in existing employee housing is allocated where it is needed most and that housing is maintained to an agreed standard.
