FPRA October Virtual Event
On August 10, 2021, the U.S. Senate voted 69-30 to pass the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (H.R. 3684), bipartisan legislation to invest in the nation's infrastructure, including funding for roads and bridges, rail, transit, ports, airports, electric grid, water systems, broadband, among other priorities. The legislation provides $944 billion in total spending over five years, totaling $550 billion in new spending. It represents a significant infusion of federal funding for U.S. public works across various industries, including public buildings.
The FRPA October member only program will focus on the various aspects of the bi-partisan Infrastructure Bill and the latest efforts to secure passage of this historic legislation. The program will take place via Webex on Tuesday, October 26 from 12:00 – 1:15pm.
We will be hearing from the following panelists:

PBRB Public Meeting Notice
As provided by the Federal Assets Sale and Transfer Act of 2016 (FASTA), the Public Buildings Reform Board (PBRB) is holding its seventh public meeting. At this meeting, the Board will discuss the High Value Asset Round and the First Round recommendations of sales, consolidations, property disposals, and redevelopment due in December 2021.
The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 28, 2021 from 2:00pm - 3:30 pm.
FASTA created the PBRB as an independent Board to identify opportunities for the Federal government to significantly reduce its inventory of civilian real property and thereby reduce costs. The Board is directed, within 6 months of its formation, to recommend to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) the sale of not fewer than five properties not on the list of surplus or excess with a fair market value of not less than $500 million and not more than $750 million. In two subsequent rounds over a five-year period, the Board is responsible for making recommendations for other sales, consolidations, property disposals or redevelopment of up to $7.25 billion.
