Union Organizer Access

The Federal Management Regulation has been revised [PDF] to clarify that union organizer access to private sector employees of Federal contractors working in Federal Government facilities is not covered or restricted by the general prohibition on soliciting and posting, displaying and distributing materials on property under the jurisdiction, custody or control of GSA (“GSA-controlled property”), provided that the activity does not interfere with access to the public areas of the facility, disrupt official Government business, interfere with approved uses of the property by occupant agencies, other tenants or by the public, or damage the property. The GSA Form 3453, Application for a Permit, includes the terms and conditions that apply to union organizer access. The signed application should be given to the GSA Facility Manager or other regionally designated official who may approve the application.

Use for non-partisan voter registration drives

We may make certain areas of federally-owned public buildings available for a non-partisan voter registration drive conducted by an organization that qualifies for an exemption from taxation under 26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(3). The GSA Form 3453, Application for a Permit, includes the terms and conditions that apply to the use of the space. The signed application for a permit should be given to the GSA Facility Manager or other regionally designated official who may approve the application.

GSA Smart Buildings

GSA's Smart Building technology framework lowers operating costs, improves cyber security, and increases tenant satisfaction while allowing Facility Managers and O&M contractors to effectively manage building operations through the use of building data.

Through this program, GSA has deployed technologies such as:

  • Advanced Metering—record and communicate energy consumption for greater clarity of consumption behavior, system monitoring and customer billing.
  • GSAlink—Fault Detection & Diagnostics system that Interprets patterns, faults, and trends in operational data to improve efficiency and ensure proper operation of building systems.
  • National Digital Signage (NDS)—Kiosks deployed to inform tenants of facility news, weather, human trafficking, and information on missing and exploited children.
  • National Computerized Maintenance Management System (NCMMS)—Building logistics including equipment management, work orders, preventive maintenance, and labor.
