Please join the Federal Real Property Association (FRPA) for the Federal Leasing Summit on May 10, 2019 from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm ET. The event will be held at the Holland & Knight in Washington, D.C. (800 17th St NW, Washington, DC 20006).
The Federal Government’s real estate portfolio is vast and diverse— including approximately 273,000 buildings in the United States that cost billions of dollars annually to operate and maintain by civilian and defense agencies. A significant portion of these facilities are leased, either by GSA in its role as the Federal Government’s principal civilian landlord, or by agencies using delegated or independent leasing authority. Given the magnitude of the Government’s leasing activity, the FRPA will sponsor its inaugural Federal Leasing Summit to examine Federal strategies for managing the leased portfolio more effectively.
The program will feature senior real estate officials from GSA and other Government agencies sharing their perspective on managing the Federal leased portfolio. The agenda will include an update on the GSA Leasing program, a panel discussion of Federal agencies using GSA delegated leasing authority, and a roundtable session among Federal agencies with independent leasing authority. The FRPA Leasing Summit is open to both Government and industry participants and should be of interest to anyone focused on asset management and workplace challenges facing the Federal Government.
