Old Admiralty Building (OAB) is the first Government Hub delivered by the London Whitehall Campus Programme, which aims to consolidate and rationalise the Government’s London estate. The Department for International Trade (DIT) and the Government Art Collection are tenants of the Hub in OAB and the Government Property Agency (GPA) is the landlord.

For financial year 20-21, DIT was allocated £1.38m for the OAB Programme via the Full Business Case submitted by the GPA to HM Treasury. Any request for information in relation to this should be referred to the GPA. A further £0.15m was transferred from the GPA for IT peripherals and £0.45m was allocated from the DIT estates budget.
