The Ministry occupies Level 5 (1,223.3 m2), part of Level 1 (424 m2) and part of the Ground Floor (160.7 m2) in Radio New Zealand House. The office space allocation per person is 16.07 m2 (2010: 16.14 m2).  The main Ministry lease expires in March 2012 and the Ministry is currently investigating options for the future.

The Going Digital project team occupies part of Level 2 at 85 The Terrace (168 m2). The lease term expires on 30 November 2013.

Other non-cancellable commitments

The Ministry has entered into non-cancellable contracts for computer maintenance, cleaning services, consulting services and other contracts for service. Non-cancellable commitments have increased this year due to arrangements associated with the new Going Digital project and activities relating to the Rugby World Cup. There are no restrictions placed on the Ministry by any of its leasing arrangements.
