Across Government Facilities Management Arrangements (AGFMA)
The Across Government Facilities Management Arrangements are an integral part of the South Australian Government’s commitment to the maintenance, management and improvement of government building assets that underpin essential community services.
The arrangements enable the Government to identify the range of work that needs to be done, negotiate a fair price, manage risk, appropriately maintain public records and ensure that the work is completed to the required standards.
Independent reviews and assessments of the arrangements since their inception have supported that they are effective in achieving the key objectives of delivering quality, managing risk, and minimising costs for the whole of Government.
The Government has entered into a new FM arrangement (Facilities Management Services for Metropolitan Adelaide Region C & N and Facilities Management Services Framework Region S & Regional South Australia) under which full services commenced on 1 July 2015 and have the potential to continue until 30 June 2024. Under the new arrangement the FM Service Providers will provide agencies with a range of effective and cost efficient FM services.
Cabinet’s approval to enter into the new FM arrangements included the determination that all agencies participating as at 30 June 2015 are bound by the new arrangements.
