The Federal government operates one of the largest real estate portfolios in the world.
For most of the last decade, the management of this vast array of real property assets has been under scrutiny by federal oversight organizations and identified as a “risk” to the government.
Now the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) has released a report for executive departments and agencies to adopt a “national strategy and better data to improve management of excess and underutilized property.”
This whitepaper proposes a technology strategy as part of this national initiative which includes:
- adopting successful private sector best practices and process improvements,
- Implementing a new centralized database,
- leveraging visualization and analytical tools (IWMS, GIS, BIM and CAD) for tracking, reporting, monitoring performance and future planning of government civilian real property.
This technology strategy will enable more accurate and standardized data to be collected across the various departments and agencies, then rolled up into a centralized repository for more productive and financially prudent property decisions.
With these tools, the government is in a better position to make the right decisions at the right time at the right cost around which real estate can be consolidated, renovated or disposed of for more effective and efficient operation of the government portfolio.
