Effective management of land and buildings is fundamental to the successful delivery of public sector services in the 21st century.
In recognition of this we have developed this guide after completing audit work at over 30 Welsh public sector bodies. It provides clear advice and innovative solutions to help organisations get the most from their buildings. It also aims to support improvements in service delivery, promote flexible working arrangements for staff, reduce costs and minimise the environmental impact of using buildings.
The guide includes advice on the key principles of buildings management:
- Value for Money – Strategic;
- Value for Money – Operational; and
- Performance Management.
It also includes a self-assessment tool to help public services judge how effectively they are managing their buildings.
