 2.3 Planning

Business planning establishes agencies' strategies for delivering government services, such as education, health, transport, policing and justice. In the context of the OAMF, the Department of Housing and Public Works delivers accommodation management services to agencies to support and enhance the delivery of their services to the community.

The business planning process for the Department of Housing and Public Works and other government agencies establishes:

  • organisational strategy and direction
  • strategic plans for service delivery programs
  • tactical or practical plans that translate strategic service delivery plans into resources needs, including capital assets, human resources, technology, office space and funding
  • operational or project plans to acquire and manage the necessary service delivery resources
  • operational service delivery plans.

The key planning process for all government agencies in relation to identifying their office accommodation needs is the translation of strategic service delivery plans into current and future accommodation requirements.

The cost of acquiring, fitting out and using office accommodation also needs to be incorporated into business plans at both the strategic and operational levels.

In relation to its role as government office accommodation service provider, the Department of Housing and Public Works undertakes office accommodation planning in three streams:

  • strategic portfolio planning for its office building assets to match supply with demand and to ensure that owned office buildings are cost-effective and suitable for government office accommodation
  • strategic office accommodation planning to integrate government agencies' office space needs into whole-of-Government strategies for the Brisbane Central Business District (CBD) and 18 other regional centres of strategic-significance in office accommodation terms
  • management-systems planning to ensure that the department's accommodation management systems are appropriate, suitable and comply with the requirements of government policy, Queensland Treasury and the Queensland Audit Office.

The planning process and procedures are described in detail in Guideline 1: Planning.
