Good data helps people to make better and more informed decisions. 

We hold property assets to allow our public sector organisations to achieve their corporate objectives. Well managed buildings are becoming more productive, greener and leaner to support changing business need. Property benchmarking provides a robust process for senior decision makers and estate managers to measure their property’s performance.

Good data helps people to make better and more informed decisions. The goal of this document is to bring transparency and consistency to the process by recommending a standardised set of indicators for use across public sector boundaries.

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 requires Public bodies, listed in the Act, including the Welsh Government, to think more about the long-term, to work better with each other and take a more joined-up approach.

Further Information

The Wales Audit Office (external website) has published a guide including advice on the key principles of buildings management:

  • Strategy;
  • 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.
