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-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 now two sets of PRODAC specifications and reporting templates, which can be found on the GovDex website [External site] through below links:

Australian Government Office Occupancy Report 2009

The Australian Government Office Occupancy Report 2009 is a whole of government report, which is based on the first PRODAC data capture in September 2009.

The report provides a snap shot of Commonwealth property prior to the establishment of the Commonwealth Property Management Framework and is the baseline from which improvements to property management can be made over time.
