Guidance

DVS services for central government

The guidance and best practice provided by DVS for central government services.

In order for central government to deliver property policy objectives and deliver front-line services effectively, they need to have a clear and effective approach to asset management.

DVS specialises in asset strategies and plans, detailed surveys, valuations and benchmarking of individual assets or whole estates to help you demonstrate your progress against the OGC Maturity Matrix.

DVS works across the whole of central (and local) government, as well as the NHS, promoting best practice and identifying opportunities for joint activity, shared services and economies of scale.
