GSA Introduces New Web-based Leasing Tool in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is launching a new web-based leasing tool, the Automated Advanced Acquisition Program (AAAP), that allows the general public and businesses to electronically submit offers to lease space to the federal government. The offer submission process is completely web-enabled, allowing all registered participants to submit and update offers to lease space to the Federal Government within specified time frames, in response to a Request for Lease Proposal.
GSA is the largest tenant in the United States, with 80% of leases less than 25,000 square feet and over 8,000 space requirements nationwide, and the e-commerce platform will help drive savings to taxpayers by improving federal leasing efficiency in the real estate market. GSA will introduce the AAAP at a special Industry Day on May 23 at the Dow Building in the Center City Philadelphia area. There will be additional AAAP Industry Days held in Baltimore, Norfolk, Richmond, Martinsburg, Charleston, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg. Register Now.
AAAP consolidates and streamlines the leasing process, not only improving customer satisfaction by facilitating GSA’s ability to meet Federal office space requirements quickly and cost effectively, but also increasing the ease of potential lessors doing business with the Federal Government. The program reduces the costs related to the acquisition of real property lease assets, and improves the supply and pricing of space offered to the government.
