Improved Operations Through One GSA, One Voice
GSA must build on the steps taken in FY 2008 and improve integration of our real property and acquisition businesses where appropriate. We strive to provide a single contact for our federal customer agencies to meet their goals, making One GSA-One Voice a permanent part of our daily operations.
GSA owns more than 1,500 buildings around the country, but we have a backlog of repairs and renovations totaling $8.8 billion for those buildings. Based on FY 2008 funding levels, GSA would need 10 years to address the backlog, assuming no new needs arise.
GSA continues to aggressively attack this problem by investing in our core assets and disposing of underperforming properties, but we must also explore new strategies for the acquisition, management, and repair of government-owned properties to ensure that our portfolio remains viable and self-sustaining over the long term.
