Central Registry of Administrative Buildings

The Central Registry of Administrative Buildings (CRAB) is a national system that keeps records of administrative buildings owned and used by the state. The system is intended mainly for state institutions and has solved the current absence of a current nationwide survey of office buildings owned by the state. It will provide them with an overview of available and occupied administrative areas owned by the state so that this property can be used in the most effective manner.

The Czech Republic currently has over 670 public institutions that manage real property law. With some exceptions, managed by these entities with the property entrusted to them under the same legislative amendments, common rules on state property records, however, do not exist. CRAB for the first time provides a uniform methodology for accounting and administrative buildings for some institutions, moreover, becomes the primary system for their records.

The project implementation was supported by funds from the Integrated Operational Programme of the European Union (85 per cent) + state budget (15 per cent).

Benefits of the CRAB system for state institutions and for the state:

- detailed information on buildings owned by the state

- up-to-date overview of costs and revenues connected with individual buildings

- accurate information on measurements of buildings, including their plans

- up-to-date overview of available office space and other premises

- overview of state institutions and non-governmental entities which are seated in state buildings

- overview of non-governmental entities which own buildings leased to the state

- rapid and simple access to records of available and occupied premises owned by the state

- detailed information on premises, their purpose and potential use (office space and other premises) and mainly information on their current occupation

- possibility to assess effectiveness of the relevant administrative premises (for example based on the parameter per employee)

- the cost of allocation of one employee may be determined if the value of the building is included

- individual parameters of individual administrative buildings and individual state institutions may be monitored
