Property Management Branch

The Property Management Branch provides the Minister for Defence with policy advice and support in relation to the efficient and cost-effective management of the Department's property portfolio in a manner compatible with the operational and training requirements of the Defence Forces.

The Department of Defence portfolio consists of some 21,000 acres and twenty-three permanently occupied military installations as well as a number of properties leased for use of the Reserve Defence Forces throughout the country. The properties are used primarily for military accommodation, occupational and training purposes. In addition to the letting and leasing of lands and properties, as required, present objectives include disposing of surplus property not required for military purposes, the disposal of married quarters outside of barracks and maximising revenue from sales. Property Management aims to ensure that military property is managed in line with government policy on the environment. The preservation, protection and conservation of natural resources, where appropriate, are important challenges in the context of environmental management.

Property Management is mindful of the importance of best management practice in the administration of the Department’s property portfolio - for the benefit of the Defence Forces, and for that of the nation as a whole.
