The £2.9m contract to develop a digital national asset register (DNAR) has been awarded to Landmark Information Group.
The two-year Cabinet Office contract requires Landmark to design and build a cloud-based platform for the collection and reporting of government property data. The deadline for delivery is 30 September 2022.
The DNAR is a core element of the Government Estate Strategy, and "will join public sector property and land data in one place and bring it together with socio-economic data".
According to the strategy document published in 2018: "This ambitious project will join up data from hundreds of public sector entities under one strategic geospatial umbrella. The information produced will be used to inform strategic asset management, improve cross public sector collaboration, make it easier to find land for development, and assess cost, utilisation and environmental performance of a wider portfolio across more organisations."
Landmark provides legal products and data services to the property sector. It is owned by DMGT, the owner of the Daily Mail.
