Project management information system

As of July 31, 2022, we will discontinue using the Electronic Project Management (ePM) tool to manage projects.

If you collaborate on projects in federally owned or leased space, use the project management software called Kahua to store and share project information and track the project progress. Usage is required for all contractors and GSA employees, and although not required for our federal agency customers, we encourage you to use it. Having all stakeholders use the same project management tool for design, construction, and leasing projects helps to improve the project delivery practices, standardize operating procedures, and ensure security and privacy.

Project managers and other team members use the tool to exchange information as they collaborate on various activities throughout the project life cycle. Examples of activities done in Kahua are: project agreements, requests for information, project schedules, design reviews, and punch lists.

Contractors, please follow up with your designated GSA point of contact (POC) for specific Kahua usage requirements. Prospective contractors, contact the POC identified in the solicitation.
