About The Government Property Agency
The Government Property Agency is changing the way the Civil Service works. We are at the forefront of Government's transformation agenda and reshaping the relationship civil servants have with their place of work.
We are responsible for delivering the Government’s Estates Strategy. We manage the Government’s property assets including delivering major programmes to build and refurbish buildings and drive more flexible smarter working practices to improve productivity and well-being. We are the landlord for government departments: we provide strategic property advice, and we are a property service provider.
We have a simple mission: to work with Departments to create great places to work for civil servants, in turn enabling them to deliver excellent public services.
Since our launch in 2018 we’re now working with over 100 clients. We are a team of property experts, drawn from both private and public sector. We have a deep skillset and perform a broad range of estate management roles. We are very proud to be civil servants, but we behave like a commercial real estate company. We bring together civil service know-how, commercial expertise, and insights into the Government central estate to help our clients meet their strategic goals and secure the best deals for Government.
Our teams are united by a clear common purpose to:
- Create and maintain great places to work for UK civil servants
- Promote the adoption of Smarter Working to improve productivity
- Solve our clients’ property issues so they can focus on their role
- Manage Government property assets sustainably for the long term
- Use our commercial expertise to deliver best value for Government
