Seán Fleming

Question:

113. Deputy Sean Fleming asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his plans for managing the State's portfolio of property assets in order to secure a reduction in the State's property bill in respect of leasehold and rental expenditure; if he will list all properties rented by the State which are subject to an upward-only rent review clause; the total annual rental payment in respect of each such property; the date of the next review; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [29785/13]

Written answers (Question to Public)

A key priority of the Commissioners of Public Works is to optimise accommodation to facilitate Government Departments in delivering public services efficiently and effectively, and to ensure that property costs are minimised. Policies are under constant review to ensure the best outcomes in meeting the operational requirements of client Departments in terms of location, size, cost, sustainability and that particular operational needs are delivered. New initiatives in this regard include the development of a new standard office workplace specification and a review of office space allocation norms.

In recent years there have been substantial changes within the Civil Service in terms of numbers of employees, departmental and agency breakdown and in changing locational needs. The Commissioners have shifted focus to rationalisation of the existing property portfolio to address the reduced demand for office space. There is a time lag between the reduction in demand for space and the disposal of surplus space, particularly in the current poor market. Notwithstanding this, The Commissioners have succeeded in reducing the office property footprint every year since 2008, by a total of almost 1 million sq.ft. (c. 88,000 m.sq.) This ongoing programme of rationalisation has also driven down annual rental expenditure by almost €30m since 2009.

The table schedules the current live leases held by the Commissioners of Public Works where an ‘Upward Only’ rent review clause is applicable.
