The performance of Northern Ireland`s planning system

Property Asset Management in Central Government
Webpage paragraph:
The central government property asset estate, valued at £9.6 billion at 31 March
2011, spans a wide range of public bodies including central government
departments; Executive Agencies; Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs); Health
and Personal Social Services Bodies; and many other centrally funded public bodies
including North/South bodies.
During the second half of 2010 we conducted a survey examining the management
arrangements of Northern Ireland’s central government property assets. In June
2011 we published the results. Overall we found that Northern Ireland lags behind
other UK regions in relation to estate management arrangements.
Our report follows on from the survey assessing whether NI central government
departments and public bodies are effectively managing and achieving value for
money from their property estate.
It examines the regional and departmental
oversight and governance arrangements that are in place; and considers whether
departments have the necessary management information and supporting systems
to deliver value for money. The report examines the following main themes;
 whether central government adequately maintains key management
information on its property assets;
 the scope for efficiency savings through more effective management
of property assets; and
 the governance arrangements
government’s property assets;
to manage
We aim to publish in Summer 2011.
