Personal Property Committees and Councils

Property Management Executive Council (PMEC)

The PMEC consist of representatives from the Federal Supply Service, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Energy, NASA, Veterans Administration, Department of Health and Human Services, and other members as agreed to by the PMEC membership.

The PMEC is engaged in a collaborative effort with commercial industry to develop best practices in the area of asset management from an asset's inception through disposal.   In partnership with commercial entities, the PMEC is setting the groundwork to reduce the cost of managing the government’s personal property effectively while increasing accountability using skilled professionals, commercial standards, and innovative technology.

The PMEC may establish Work Groups to examine specific issues.  The PMEC will provide each Work Group with its specific mission.  Each Work Group will provide status reports at each PMEC meeting and present comprehensive final reports when necessary.

Interagency Committee on Property Management (ICPM)

The ICPM consists of a representative designated by any Executive agencies interested in personal property.  The committee chairperson may appoint a steering subcommittee composed of six or more committee members.  The steering subcommittee may appoint task groups as needed to accomplish the functions of the full committee.  Task group members need not be member agency representatives.

The ICPM, on a continuing basis, reviews agency and governmentwide personal property management practices for the purposes of:

  • Developing initiatives to standardize efficient and effective property management policies, procedures, and automated Systems among agencies and recommending their application on a governmentwide basis;
  • Identifying, publicizing, and promoting on a governmentwide basis, changes to policies, procedures, systems and other property management initiatives; and
  •  Encouraging meaningful performance measurement and enhanced customer service in the interest of good property stewardship.

The committee conducts appropriate studies, reviews, and projects and submits to the Associate Administrator for Governmentwide Policy, GSA, recommendations for improvements in governmentwide property management policies and practices.

Federal Boat Executive Committee (FBEC) 

The FBEC consists of federal government departments or agencies operating boats to accomplish their missions.  One voting member (who votes on committee business) and one alternate member (who can only vote on committee business in the absence of the voting member) represent each participating department or agency.  Department or agency representatives are senior officials who are knowledgeable, responsible, and accountable for the overall marine activities within their department or agency.  They have the authority to speak for their department or agency and to commit funding and staffing in support of committee initiatives.

The FBEC is a collaborative effort with federal agencies that use boats, and other waterborne craft to accomplish a wide variety of missions.  As stewards of these taxpayer-provided resources, it is imperative that agencies manage their marine resources as effectively and efficiently as any other asset at their disposal.  GSA established this working group in the fall 2009 to provide a forum for agencies to share information, to discuss shared concerns, and to discover solutions to common problems collaboratively. Topics of interest include management and operational issues or challenges common to all federal agencies with watercraft; establishing common data standards and electronic systems to monitor boat cost and operations; and reviewing and developing policies, projects or programs to promote the economical, safe and cost efficient operation of all Government-owned boats.
