 Guideline 2: Space

These pages are currently under review and subject to change.  




Guideline 2: Space is the second 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 provides advice and support to agencies in relation to the management of their office space to assist them to align their accommodation with service delivery needs on a continuing basis; describes the procedures involved in acquiring, reducing and reconfiguring office space; and describes the role and activities of the Department of Housing and Public Works in office space management.

  • provide advice and support to agencies in relation to the management of their office space in order to assist them to align their accommodation with service delivery needs on a continuing basis
  • describe the procedures involved in acquiring, reducing and reconfiguring office space
