The Government Property Unit (GPU) is the property arm of the Efficiency and Reform Group (ERG) in the Cabinet Office (CO) and leads the Government’s property strategy across the public sector. It is responsible for delivering targeted savings, as well improving the built environment and promoting economic growth where possible.
The GPU works with departments to help accelerate the delivery of cost savings and sustainability targets. It provides strategic leadership and support, for example by helping departments to identify their surplus and under-utilised property assets. It also helps organisations across the public sector to manage their property more efficiently, supporting them to develop strategic property plans and helping with complex projects and procurements.
