 Guideline 1: Planning

These pages are currently under review and subject to change.




Guideline 1: Planning is the first of four OAMF guidelines (Guideline 1: Planning, Guideline 2:
Space
, Guideline 3: Fitout, and Guideline 4: Occupancy) that support the OAMF. The OAMF integrates policies, process, activities and guidelines for agencies in relation to establishing office accommodation needs, acquiring and fitting out suitable space, utilising that space effectively and managing the accommodation-change (churn) process.

This guideline demonstrates the relationship between the Department of Housing and Public Works as office accommodation provider, and agencies as office accommodation users, in terms of the planning process; provides best practice advice to agencies to enable them to plan their office accommodation needs effectively; and facilitates agencies' contribution to the whole-of-Government office accommodation planning process.

Purpose

The purpose of this guideline is to:

  • demonstrate the relationship between the Department of Housing and Public Works (HPW) as office accommodation provider, and agencies as office accommodation users, in terms of the planning process
  • provide best practice advice to agencies to enable them to plan their office accommodation needs effectively
  • facilitate agencies' contribution to the whole-of-Government office accommodation planning process.

Scope

This guideline encompasses the process of office accommodation planning at individual agency level and at the whole-of-Government level. This guideline focuses on assisting agencies to:

  • forecast changes to office accommodation demand to meet service delivery change
  • integrate agencies' office accommodation demand into the whole-of-Government strategic office accommodation planning process
  • identify office accommodation demand and cost as components of the resources required for service delivery.

This guideline also describes the planning process undertaken by HPW in:

  • managing its office building assets
  • developing integrated, whole-of-Government office accommodation strategies for the Brisbane CBD and 18 strategically-significant regional centres
  • managing its office accommodation Information Technology systems.
