This guideline describes the process, procedures, conditions and responsibilities applicable to agencies in their occupancy of government-owned and private sector-leased office accommodation; describes the role and responsibilities of the Department of Housing and Public Works in providing and managing government office accommodation; and provides best practice advice for using office accommodation efficiently and effectively.
