Federal Asset Management

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Federal Property Administration (BVV) was the name of the administration for the general real estate and the state forests owned by the Federal Republic of Germany , as it existed as part of the Federal Finance Administration from 1950 to 2004. With effect from January 1, 2005, the Federal Property Management was transferred to the Federal Agency for Real Estate Tasks .

Development and structure

There was no special asset management for the German Reich . Rather, the individual specialist administrations were responsible for this. After the capitulation, in autumn 1945 the extensive real estate of the Reich, which consisted to a large extent of properties previously used by the military, was assigned to the regional finance directorates for administration in the western occupation zones on the instructions of the military government . "Processing offices" were set up there for this purpose. Local administration was entrusted to the tax offices , which also set up "settlement centers" which began their work in 1946. In 1948 they were renamed “Administrative Offices for Reich and State Assets ” (RuS-Offices).

The Basic Law of 1949 ordered in Art. 134 GG the fundamental transfer of all Reich assets into federal assets. For this reason, federal property and construction departments were initially set up as part of the federal finance administration at the regional finance directorates through the Finance Administration Act of 6 September 1950. These departments were subject to the official and technical supervision of the Federal Ministry of Finance . From October 29, 1957 to October 22, 1969, the Federal Ministry of Economic Property (since November 14, 1961: Federal Ministry of Treasury) exercised the technical supervision. In 1952, the departments were subordinated to "branch offices", which in 1953 were renamed "federal property offices".

By the Empire Asset Act immovable assets of the German Reich was transferred permanently to the Federal Republic of Germany.

In 1971, the federal property and construction departments were renamed to federal property departments because the federal government had its building tasks carried out by the building administrations of the states by way of organ lending . The federal property offices were converted into federal property offices. In 2001 there were 37 offices.
