Framework policy

Office accommodation is the physical workspace needed to accommodate the people and technology required to develop, implement and administer the delivery of an organisation's products and services. Office accommodation is located, configured and fitted out in response to the business needs of the organisation, and successful office accommodation management involves coordinating and aligning the physical workplace with business needs on a continuing basis.

This Office Accommodation Management Framework (OAMF) has been developed by the Department of Housing and Public Works for the primary purpose of supporting agencies in all aspects of their acquisition, management and utilisation of office accommodation. In the context of the OAMF, office accommodation also refers to commercial and operational accommodation provided in buildings owned by the Department of Housing and Public Works as well as commercial and operational accommodation leased from the private sector.

The Department of Housing and Public Works is committed to achieving best practice management of its building assets and its accommodation portfolio, and also to supporting agencies in all accommodation matters.

This framework document describes the operating environment and the office accommodation management processes. More specific information relating to the processes of planning, space, fitout and occupancy is provided in the form of separate guidelines and supporting documents prepared by the Department of Housing and Public Works. References to these guidelines are made throughout this framework document. Accommodation management can be considered functionally in terms of an interlocking group of processes that continue sequentially but also involve interaction between processes.
