Our professional advice teams help departments to achieve economies of scale. Savings accrue when OGC and departments work together to deliver cross-departmental workspace strategies based on the exploitation of government's collective bargaining strength.
By putting forward a comprehensive range of options and facilitating discussion, we can ensure that departments take strategic decisions in the full knowledge of the wider financial impact.
Collaborative Opportunities include:
The Civil Estate Co-ordination Protocol (CECP) (PDF) sets out how Government bodies will co-ordinate their activity in acquiring, managing, rationalising and disposing of workspace on the Civil Estate.
At the last review of Managing Public Money the opportunity was taken by Treasury to strengthen the requirements previously contained in DAO letters.
The CEOA sets out general arrangements for shared occupations by Crown bodies Its purpose is to act as framework agreement which Crown bodies sharing occupation should adopt to establish arrangements between Holders and Occupiers.
