PBS Customer Forum

The Public Buildings Service’s Customer Forums provide federal real property personnel the opportunity to learn, first-hand, from GSA experts about new and updated policies, programs, and initiatives. Managed by the Office of Portfolio Management and Customer Engagement, these events feature information and updates from across PBS business lines on the topics that are most important to our customers. These events also provide the opportunity to ask questions directly to GSA personnel and network with other federal real property professionals.
