Executive Director, ES-IV Public Buildings Reform Board
Interested candidates please contact: Paul Walden - Paul.Walden@pbrb.gov
This position is located in the Public Buildings Reform Board (PBRB), which was established under, and is responsible for implementing, the Federal Assets Sale and Transfer Act (FASTA) of 2016, as amended. The Executive Director is a senior real property official and subject matter expert who leads and manages a team of senior federal detailees and contractors to execute the Board’s mission of developing major Federal domestic real property projects and strategies, including consolidations, collocations, disposals, space and housing plans, and redevelopment alternatives to better utilize or dispose of unneeded and underutilized federal real property nationwide.
The work of the Board involves extensive coordination and negotiation with many different Federal agencies, State and local governments, corporations, and/or private property owners.
The proposed projects may affect agency-wide operations, major aspects of land management and realty programs, and other critical agency support functions. Transactions being considered and developed are typically of a scope that require long-term, comprehensive planning; and the approval of the head of the agency, because they exceed delegated authorities; have program-wide implications; or may represent increased risk to the Federal Government. Projects and plans may affect multiple agencies, multiple locations, hundreds of thousands of square feet of space, and workspace for thousands of people. Such projects and properties typically encompass a highly complex and technical range of situations and options.
The Executive Director reviews and provides advice and guidance on comparative courses of action for proposed projects such as the possible outcomes of various offered or proposed transaction structures, sales methodologies, and other real estate and interagency ‘deal’ scenarios; all with the purpose of developing and proposing complex transactions that provide win-win scenarios for the tenant agencies, the local communities, and the federal government overall. The Executive Director represents PBRB and provides strategic advice and recommendations to high level officials throughout Government, including the Board, senior leadership in the General Services Administration (GSA), other Federal Agencies, the Office of Management and Budget, and Congressional staff and offices and the private sector. The Executive Director also oversees and is responsible for all aspects of administrative management for the Agency, including staffing, budget and financial management, procurement, infrastructure, technology, and other administrative support activities.
