We establish and maintain policies and criteria regarding engineering design, building technology and systems, products, and materials. These standards set performance objectives for private sector consultants contracted to GSA. Interested firms should view our opportunities in buildings and real estate.
We also manage national programs in such areas as sustainable design, workplace productivity, fire protection/life safety, and design and cost benchmarking.
