CIPFA Property is able to provide practical advice and support to help you get the maximum out of your property assets

CIPFA Property has an acknowledged reputation as one of the leaders in asset management thinking and development of cutting edge practice within the public sector going back over 15 years. We have an impressive track record in supporting the public sector through this time, providing practical advice, support and training in helping organisations to understand how assets play a vital part in the change agenda and in the enormous challenges we face.

​Public property specialists

The public sector is facing extraordinary cuts, requiring reductions to net budgets of up to a third in many cases, while at the same time trying to maintain current service levels and standards.

Savings on this scale can only be achieved through unprecedented transformation, with more shared services, rationalisation and co-location of assets forming a key part of this process. While the way in which public services manage their assets both strategically and operationally has been realised for some time, it has never been more firmly under the spotlight.

Consultancy services

We are able to provide a full and varied consultancy support service for the public sector, drawing on other specialists from within the wider CIPFA organisation as required. The range of services we are most commonly asked to provide include:

  • value for money reviews
  • asset management 'health checks' 
  • advice on strategic asset management direction
  • support in developing and reviewing partnership approaches
  • writing corporate asset management plans, property strategies and review investment strategies
  • service asset management planning 
  • option appraisals
  • property organisational reviews 
  • assessing portfolio and service performance 
  • building statutory premises compliance audits
  • workshop facilitation.
