Australian Government Property Data Collection

Australian Government Property Data Collection (PRODAC) has been established to provide a central database on the office space leased and owned by the Australian Government. This information will help entities to identify better practices, and progressively improve the management and use of office space. The data collections will also be used to inform Whole of Australian Government property policy.

PRODAC collects two files of data information:

PRODAC Property File - collects information about the office space leased and owned by the Australian Government as of 30 September each year. Property File includes area, workpoint and descriptive data.

PRODAC Cost File - collects information on expenses and revenue related to office space leased and owned by the Australian Government on a full financial year basis. Cost File includes rent expense, revenue and administration expense data.

PRODAC Specifications

Entities report information in line with the PRODAC specifications. There are two sets of PRODAC specifications and reporting templates, which can be found through below links:

Australian Government Office Occupancy Report

The Whole of Australian Government property information in this Report is collected through the annual PRODAC, which Non-Corporate Commonwealth Entities update in September each year. The data collected is used to identify and progressively move to better property management practices and inform Whole of Australian Government policy.

This Report sets out the occupational density for entities against the current target of 14 square metres of office space per occupied work point.
