Office Accommodation Services
The Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) is responsible for the management of the South Australian Government’s office accommodation in leased and owned buildings. The Department plans and manages agency accommodation needs to ensure that each workplace complies with the respective standards and supports staff to perform their work. The Department is responsible for strategic planning and whole-of-government corporate property advice. Primary responsibilities are the management of leases in privately owned buildings, the management of government owned office buildings and day to day property management including payment and collection of rent.
DIT is the South Australian Government’s single point of contact for the commercial property market in the leasing of government office accommodation.

Government Fit-out Standards
The Government Fit-out Standards have been developed by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport. They outline the Government of South Australia workplace design principles and approach and provide a set of guidelines for new office accommodation in government owned and leased premises. These guidelines are currently under review and being updated to reflect the requirements for modern collaborative workplaces. Attached are the latest published version from 2014.
The mandatory office accommodation space standards for all new, refurbished or upgraded fit outs are nominally 12m² per person with less than 10% of persons in enclosed offices. Final approved space usage is based on a fit-for-purpose test according to service delivery requirements and/or building floor plate.

The Green Fit-out Guide provides a list of ecologically sustainable measures for consideration by design teams and building occupants and applies to government fit-outs.
