Government Property NSW Act 2006
Property NSW operates under the following principal legislation:
Roles and Responsibilities for accommodation occupied by agencies
The Roles and Responsibilities documents below reflect the obligations of the parties in conjunction with the terms of any correlating transaction documents (Leases, Licences) for the Premises
Property Asset Utilisation Taskforce (PAUT)
The Property Asset Utilisation Taskforce (PAUT) was established to identify and make recommendations about capturing efficiencies in the NSW Government’s ownership, utilisation and management of its owned and leased property portfolio. The PAUT delivered their report to Cabinet in November 2012.
Following a subsequent review of local and international best practice, the Government has adopted new principles to improve the management of government property assets and support the delivery of core services.
These principles, which are rolling out across government, include incentives to improve utilisation of Government’s property portfolio, separating property management from service delivery to ensure independence and transparency of these respective functions, further developing specialised property systems and capabilities, and undertaking more robust reporting on portfolio performance across whole of government.
The new principles will improve asset utilisation, enhance service delivery and drive savings for government, while increasing transparency across the Government’s property portfolio.
Property Infrastructure Policy (PIP)
In 2017, the NSW Government approved a new policy to assist agencies with the identification of surplus and underutilised real property assets and make whole-of- government decisions on the future use of these assets to support the State’s objectives.
The Property Infrastructure Policy will see Property NSW undertake detailed reviews of government’s property portfolio to identify surplus and underutilised assets which may be suitable for transfer to other government agencies or sold to deliver housing or social infrastructure.
The Policy will encourage a whole-of-government approach to the allocation of the State’s real property capital that will ultimately assist the State in delivering its significant infrastructure requirements.
The policy supports the NSW Government’s Housing Affordability Strategy, the Premier’s Priorities and complements the Greater Sydney Commission’s District Plans through the identification of land to deliver on housing and infrastructure requirements.
Community Use Policy (CUP)
The NSW Government has approved a policy allowing certain real property not required by the NSW Government for current or future service delivery to be offered to local councils for purchase to help deliver better community outcomes.
Through the Community Use Policy, Property and Development NSW will work with other NSW Government agencies to provide local councils the opportunity to acquire real property assets for community purposes that are surplus to NSW Government requirements, subject to satisfying specific criteria for community use.
Asset Utilisation Recycling Plan (AURP)

In everything we do, we are expected to act, and be seen to act, in the public interest. Our interaction with the private sector, our commercial partners, and our suppliers must be undertaken with transparency and integrity.
