Applied Research Overview

Exterior of the San Francisco Federal Building

The PBS Applied Research program delivers expert research in order to:

  • Generate recommendations to improve PBS operations, strategies, and policies
  • Lead research to formulate strategic use of new and existing technologies to advance the PBS mission

Given the PBS inventory of more than 8,600 buildings, which provide workspace for more than 1.1 million federal employees, GSA's research can have enormous impact in important areas such as energy use, sustainability, and employee satisfaction. Applied Research's results and presentations are publicly available on this website.
