The Real Property Management Function covers records of sub-functions and activities related to acquisition, use and disposal of land and premises by government institutions while meeting their accommodation requirements. Accommodations are acquired through the purchase or rental of existing lands and buildings or through the construction of new facilities.
Accommodations are also allocated, renovated, maintained, serviced and when no longer required, are disposed of by sale, by transfer or by terminating leases. Records relating to the installation of major utility services such as heating and lighting, telecommunications, water and sewage, etc., are also contained in this Function.
Records not authorized for disposition
This part of the Retention Guidelines for Common Administrative Records of the Government of Canada is scheduled to be replaced by a new Multi-Institutional Disposition Authority covering this Function. In the interim, its contents duplicate Schedule 2, Buildings and Properties, of the General Records Disposal Schedules of the Government of Canada (GRDS). Disposition authority granted by the GRDS - PAC 86/001 - covering records of this Function is valid until superseded by a new Multi-Institutional Disposition Authority.
Offices of Primary Interest
Disposition authority - in this case the disposition authority granted in PAC 86/001 - as well as the Retention Guidelines do not apply to records of Offices of Primary Interest "OPIs", or central agencies, in the pursuance of their mandated role in the area of Real Property Management on behalf of the Government of Canada. Examples of such government bodies are the Treasury Board Secretariat and Public Works and Government Services Canada, and any other institution mandated to perform, in full or in part, a Real Property Management function on behalf of the Government of Canada. The disposition authority granted in PAC 86/001 does apply, however, to such organizations' internal real property management records.
The statement found under this heading for other Functions is not applicable at this time because of this Function's unique status until superseded.
