Welcome to the BIFM GPP portal




Sherin Aminossehe, Head of the Government Property Profession and Deputy Director Government Estate Strategy and Delivery, GPU Linda Hausmanis, CEO, BIFM

Welcome to the GPP BIFM Portal. We are pleased to be working with BIFM to enable the GPP to increase knowledge and develop the skills to improve our work as property practitioners.  Our aim is to raise capability across government and increase the professional standing of all those who work in the various property disciplines and we recognise that it is important to engage with the leading professional institutes, such as the BIFM, which align themselves with those aspirations.

This portal represents a work in progress and initially showcases BIFM qualifications and a snapshot of some of the many resources the Institute provides for its own members. We are developing further opportunities for shared learning with the BIFM to supplement the CPD framework which we are currently putting together for the GPP and we will let you know more about this in due course.

For now, please browse the site and, as ever, you can leave feedback via gpp@cabinetoffice.gov.uk or the LinkedIn “Government Property Profession" group.

Welcome to the BIFM GPP Portal, this has been created as part
of our ongoing partnership with the GPP to support your development.

As the professional body for facilities management we support individual and corporate members and many more through qualifications, training, events and guidance materials.

This portal is the start of how we are working with the GPP and highlights some of the many ways you can develop and enhance your professional skills with BIFM.

We are committed to supporting FM professionals at every stage of their  career, so whether you are starting out or at the top of your game, we have the membership, qualifications and training to support you.
