What do we mean by delivery model options?
Examples of delivery model options for accommodation management include:
Decentralized— Each organization manages its own accommodation and budget. Overseeing central agency establishes accommodation standards and policies.
Mixed— Common services agency manages part of the accommodation portfolio; some organizations manage their own facilities.
Mandatory centralized service model—Common services agency manages accommodation portfolio; client organizations control funding but must use agency services.
Centralized—Common services agency allocates and manages portfolio on behalf of client organizations and manages funding government-wide.
Key delivery management considerations for government facilities
Key considerations in designing the accommodation management delivery model in the public sector include:
The extent of centralization/decentralization of the accommodation management function
The extent to which funding is managed centrally by a single agency or decentralized to departments, ministries or agencies
The extent to which accommodation management activities are delivered in-house, contracted out to multiple suppliers, or outsourced to a single or small number of external service providers.
The scope of the portfolio managed (e.g., office accommodation, special purpose facilities, para-public facilities)
Whether accommodation is mainly leased, government-owned, or a mix of government owned and privately leased
The role of common service agencies/ central funding agencies
The role of departments and agencies in managing accommodation
The responsibility for fit-ups and tenant services
The reporting relationships of accommodation management staff.
