At the last review of Managing Public Money the opportunity was taken by Treasury to strengthen the requirements previously contained in DAO letters. The matters listed in this section below are now formally incorporated in Managing Public Money and the detail previously given in DAO letters is now incorporated in OGC Mandatory Guidance, which replaces the relevant DAO letters.
This guidance sets out the requirement for Treasury approval for all substantial accommodation proposals in London and the South East. The attached protocol applies to new property leases, lease renewals or extensions, the non-operation of lease breaks, freehold acquisitions and new builds for all United Kingdom government departments, their executive agencies and sponsored bodies. It does not apply in respect of certain public sector activities set out in the protocol itself.
This guidance is issued to implement the Lyons reviews . Central government bodies should now be guided by the revised Civil Estate Occupancy Agreement (CEOA) and Civil Estate Coordination Protocol (CECP). These documents relate to the occupation and management of workspace on the Civil Estate.
This guidance sets out the details of the requirement to use e-PIMS, the electronic Property Information Mapping Service operated by the Office of Government Commerce (OGC), to record information about all the properties central government bodies own, use, control, occupy or plan to occupy.
