Government has set itself an ambitious target of achieving between £1bn and £1.5bn of savings by 2013 from its running of the civil estate. This will be achieved through the High Performing Property strategy launched by OGC in 2006, which ensures efficient management of property assets is championed at Departmental board-level and becomes a fundamental part of business planning and delivery. Our benchmarking, mapping and database tools give additional support to departments to make strategic property planning decisions and manage their estate efficiently.  We also work to reduce any negative environmental impacts that arise from our estate or the use of it.
