Information on the occupation costs of each property used by the Department is not centrally recorded and this information could only be obtained at disproportionate costs.

However, Government departments and their arm's length bodies are required to measure the efficiency and environmental sustainability of their administrative office occupations over 500 square metres, through participation in an annual property benchmarking programme. The occupation costs of applicable property used by the Department for Transport are reported as part of this programme. The results for 2011-12 are due to be published shortly in the forthcoming State of the Estate Report 2012.
