Award Program Results 2012
WINNING ENTRIES SELECTED IN GSA FY 2012 ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FOR REAL PROPERTY INNOVATION
For this year's Achievement Award program, GSA sought entries demonstrating innovation, creativity and best practices in three categories of Federal real property: Asset Management, Sustainability and Workplace Innovation. GSA received a total of 25 entries from 5 Federal agencies for this year's program, resulting in an extremely competitive field. Submitted entries included a wide variety of projects from across the Federal sector, covering a broad range of real property areas, technical specialties and geographic locations. Some entries focus on a single facility, while others describe wide-range frameworks that are national in scope. An independent panel of real property professionals reviewed and evaluated the entries in Asset Management, Sustainability and Workplace Innovation categories.
The competition resulted in one winning entry in the Asset Management category, one winning entry in the Sustainability category and one entry in the Workplace Innovation category. GSA honored the three winning entries at an Awards Ceremony on July 27 at the FedFleet and More Conference held in Louisville, Kentucky.
