PPP/PFI contracts often share a number of features: they run over a very long period of time; they are conceived without a complete understanding of how requirements may change and despite the rhetoric they tend to create a context where dispute and litigation rather than partnership are the norm. In this environment, effective auditing is essential to ensure that projects are delivering what the end-user requires. Audits are both a public sector right, and a matter of good management sense. Performance Auditing of Public Sector Property Contracts is a practical guide to performance auditing for public sector property managers with a series of guidelines for auditors of public sector property contracts. The book concentrates on Facilities Management contracts. Lori Keating explains the basis for the process; how to retain balance, independence and rigour and how to audit intangible performance measures and other tricky areas. The book follows an audit process from commencement to conclusion, and contains a discussion of factors that contribute to the success of any audit. It is essential reading for public sector auditors, PPP project managers and contractors.

Conventionally, the literature on project management presents the story from the project client, or Owner’s, perspective. Project Management for Supplier Organizations turns this on its head and explores the challenges and remedies from the perspective of the vendors providing the necessary goods and services to a project. It explains the likely impact on the structure, culture, and procedures of Suppliers and identifies the additional competences they may require. It offers new insights, frameworks and models, in particular a new Supplier Organization’s Project Lifecycle Model, that integrate the role of the Supplier as a member of the Owner’s project team with their own necessary commercial activities such as marketing and selling. For Suppliers, this unlocks the contents of the various Bodies of Knowledge, by showing how and where the tools and techniques of project management apply to their particular role. The text explores in some detail the shared and divergent interests of Suppliers and Owners and shows how a well thought-out and carefully executed procurement process maximises the former and diminishes the latter. Such an insight is equally valuable for any Owner Organization. Adrian Taggart’s book provides a refreshing and essential perspective. For Suppliers managing their role in a project, it offers a real insight and an urgent set of priorities. For Owners it shows how best they can work with their suppliers to mutual benefit.

The background to this NAO report is a renewed focus on the contribution that office property can make to improving government efficiency. The Government's civil property estate has an estimated worth of £30 billion and costs around £6 billion to run presenting significant opportunities for savings. This NAO report seeks to add impetus to the Office of Government's Commerce (OGC) initiative to save up to £1.5 billion through an annual efficiency saving by 2013. This report presents a consolidated view of the performance of central government departments' UK office property. The assessment is based on 16 Government departments', with a detailed review of departments' office strategies and planning processes. Divided into five parts, it covers the following areas: the importance of office property; an analysis of central government's spending; departmental property asset management; the role of the OGC in improving government's value for money; the potential efficiency savings from improving the performance of office property. Among the recommendations, are: Departments should have better data on the efficiency of individual buildings; Departments should actively engage wit the OGC's benchmarking service for the efficiency performance of buildings; Department's can achieve cost savings by locating in less expensive regions.
