Government Office Accommodation
Government Office Accommodation (GOA) is a branch of the Building Management and Works division of the Department of Finance. GOA is responsible for coordinating the effective delivery and ongoing management of the State Government’s office accommodation portfolio.
Under the Minister for Works, the Government's office accommodation portfolio is approximately 555,000 square metres across the State. As of June 2012, the portfolio includes some 510 leases with private sector landlords and 19 Government owned buildings.
GOA can also play a large role in achieving wider Government objectives. Improving the sustainability of Government office accommodation can contribute to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and the location of Government services can support the planned development of our cities and towns.
