S.i. Systems' valued public sector client is building a pool of Senior Organizational Development Consultants to work on an as-needed basis over the next 4+ years, primarily in providing advice and guidance on Human Resourcing strategies for a public sector Real Property organization.

Three years ago, the Client assumed real property custodial responsibility for its facilities assets. The Real Property Branch (RPB) budget went from $2M to almost $35M per year, resulting in a dramatic increase of legal and financial risks as well as accountabilities for the proper management of its facilities. However, RPB received minimal resource additions to accompany these added responsibilities. This has created significant risk to the RPB’s ability to deliver services and properly manage its dedicated facilities.
The Client requires areview and reassessment of all real property processes and planning capacity to ensure that the human resources will meet current and long-term operational requirements of the organization. The organizational capacity reassessment and implementation will require a holistic change management approach that will support the organisation through this transition.
