Please join the Federal Real Property Association (FRPA) on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. for our panel discussion with the Department of Homeland Security. The event will be held at Holland & Knight in Washington D.C. (800 17th St. NW).
Event Description: As part of an upcoming series focusing on major cabinet agencies and their component bureaus, the October session of the FRPA will feature the Department of Homeland Security. The conversation will focus on the challenges and opportunities the Department and its component units face in managing a real property portfolio that exceeds 100M square feet. Panelists will include:
Tom Chaleki, Chief Readiness Support Officer, Department of Homeland Security
Captain Patrick Dugan, Chief, Office of Civil Engineering, U.S. Coast Guard
Karl Calvo, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Facilities and Asset Management, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Michael Gibbs, Chief of Administration, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
The panel will discuss how current and future mission and operational requirements are informing Department-wide and component-specific real estate strategies. The panelists will examine where they see opportunities for enhanced real estate coordination (including the DHS field efficiency initiative) compared to other instances where components will continue to focus on their unique requirements. The discussion would focus not just on the DHS facilities in the National Capital Region, but also look to the major metropolitan areas where the Department has a significant presence.
When: October 23, 2018 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
