GLS Plus is a collection of multiple, zonal Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts. Designed to complement GSA’s leasing workforce and provide lease workload support services to the regions, this tool leverages commercial brokerage acumen to provide more efficient space solutions. GLS Plus emphasizes taxpayer savings, improves the federal agency customer experience from requirements development through occupancy, and leverages private sector expertise. This contract signals both a stretch toward greater innovation and higher performance expectations from our external partners. Building on the successes of the past, multi-disciplined, interdivisional and cross-regional teams, including Program Officials, Leasing Specialists, and Contracting Officers, developed the GLS Plus Statement of Work.
GSA will assess broker performance under GLS Plus based upon achievement of desired outcomes for each lease acquisition project. GSA intends to increase the use of brokers under GLS Plus with enhanced pre- and post-award services and integrating new technologies -- such as virtual market tours and analytical tools -- which promote cost saving real estate solutions. The overarching goal with GLS Plus is to more closely align broker performance with GSA’s strategic objective of saving money through real estate. Broker performance expectations begin with aggressive customer planning efforts, closer adherence to project schedules and costs, and continued opportunities for small businesses.
