 1.2 Scope of application

The OAMF applies to all Queensland Government departments as defined in s4A of the Financial Administration and Audit Act 1977 and to all Queensland Government statutory authorities that are wholly or partly funded through the Queensland State Budget.

The OAMF does not specifically apply to Queensland Government-owned corporations but accommodation-related guidelines, standards and services provided by the Department of Housing and Public Works are available to those corporations on an advisory and/or commercial basis, if required. The implementation of the OAMF has the potential to achieve significant accommodation savings and efficiencies, and its adoption by self-funded statutory authorities and Queensland Government owned corporations is recommended.

The OAMF applies to Queensland Government commercialised business units.

The OAMF also applies to accommodation leased from agencies other than the Department of Housing and Public Works. Government Office Accommodation Committee has approved that the tenancy management of all accommodation leased by one agency from another is the responsibility of the Department of Housing and Public Works. The revenue resulting from such leasing activities is to be collected by the Department of Housing and Public Works on Queensland Treasury's behalf.

Such accommodation includes office space, storage space, warehouse space, car parking and operational space generally.

Accommodation leased by one agency from another should be subject to commercially equivalent rental in order to reflect the true cost of service delivery. When a commercial rental is not readily identifiable, then advice should be sought from the Department of Housing and Public Works in relation to establishing a fair and reasonable rental.

Leases and rental are not applicable when the facility is jointly owned by the occupying agencies. In these cases, tenancy management is undertaken by the agencies that own and occupy the facility.
