Find me some government space!

Graphic of buildings showing shared office spaceSharing unused meeting rooms and workstations is one of the easiest ways for us to maximise use of a dwindling estate and ensure our facility needs are met without incurring the costs of turning to external suppliers.

Find Me Some Government Space (FMSGS) automates the shared facilities initiative developed by the Government Property Unit (GPU) and Civil Service local to promote this principle.


The e-PIMS FMSGS tool is an online application you can use to share and book meeting rooms and workstations across government departments and buildings. Details of the facilities available through FMSGS can be found at
We would also love to hear from you, especially if you have a meeting room or workstation available for hot-desking to add to the register, in which case, please contact:

• London, South East and East of England: Angie Elliker
• North West, West Midlands and the South West: Ross Kennedy
• Yorkshire and the Humber, North East and the East Midlands: Jonny Webb

If you have any concerns about this initiative or suggestions about how we can improve it, please contact: Colin Packman

The Government Property Unit have now expanded the offer of underused space to charities, social enterprises and small business. Read what Sir Bob Kerslake has written about the Space for Growth scheme.
