MANAGEMENT OF COMMONWEALTH PROPERTY

The Federal Government has selected Jones Lang Wootton to manage 67 Commonwealth office buildings spread through Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania.

Announcing the selection, the Minister for Administrative Services, Mr David Jull, said Jones Lang Wootton had been chosen from 10 tenderers.

“The calibre of all tenders was very high, but the selected tender offered the Commonwealth the best value for money,” Mr Jull said.

“That means that we will be getting the best possible return on taxpayers money.”

Mr Jull said the decision was based on a number of criteria which included responsiveness, continuity and uniformity of service, quality of reporting and competitive pricing.

The services Jones Lang Wootton will provide include tenancy management and leasing, building maintenance, income and cost administration, energy management and performance reporting.

Hand-over is expected to take place on October 7 following negotiation of final contract terms.

Jones Lang Wootton has 64 offices in 23 countries. It has offices throughout Australia and New Zealand and employs more than 900 staff. It specialises in providing services in all aspects of commercial real estate.

The estate is being outsourced in three groupings. The Southern Region is made up of offices in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania. The Northern Region consists of 28 properties in New south Wales and Queensland and tenders for it close on September 27.

The ACT Region tender will close on October 23. It consists of 29 properties.
