Survey of Property Asset Management in Central Government

This document contains the findings from our survey, based on responses to a questionnaire (Appendix 1) examining the management arrangements of Northern Ireland’s central government property assets8.

The survey gave Accounting Officers/Chief Executives of the public bodies invited to participate (Appendix 2) the option to submit either a paper or an electronic response.

The survey took place between August and October 2010, with each public body being given four weeks to complete and submit the questionnaire. Following some extensions to the original deadline a 100 per cent return rate was achieved by 21 October 2010, some six weeks after the original deadline. We plan to publish a wider and more detailed report later.
