The Lease Offer Platform (LOP) provides the opportunity for building owners and building owner representatives to electronically offer space to the Federal Government for lease. The offer submission process is completely web-enabled, allowing all registered participants to submit and update offers for lease space to the Federal Government within specified timeframes, in response to a Request for Lease Proposal (RLP) package.
LOP consists of the Automated Advanced Acquisition Program (AAAP) and Requirement Specific Acquisition Platform (RSAP).
AAAP is a multiple-award lease procurement tool that allows the market to compete for multiple federal leases by submitting a single offer through a simple online platform. AAAP collects best and final offers, for generic office space needs, that remain in a secure database throughout the fiscal year (Oct 1–Sept 30). Offerors are encouraged to submit all available office space, for three lease term options, with consideration to GSA's minimum requirements.
RSAP is a single-award lease procurement tool that collects online offers for a specific space requirement using a single RLP. Offerors may use RSAP to tailor initial offers using a streamlined workflow.
Input your data into the Present Value Analysis workbook [XLSX - 55 KB] to conduct present value analysis of lease proposals. The model includes inputs for overtime heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) rates; stepped rental rates; free rent; offerors' Tenant Improvements (TI) fee schedule as outlined in the RLP; and lump sum payments. It also provides a discount rate of 5 percent and an inflation factor of 2.5 percent as provided by the Realty Services Letter PE-2003-02 [PDF - 197 KB].
Traveler reimbursement is based on the location of the work activities and not the accommodations, unless lodging is not available at the work activity, then the agency may authorize the rate where lodging is obtained.
Unless otherwise specified, the per diem locality is defined as "all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city, including independent entities located within those boundaries."
Per diem localities with county definitions shall include"all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city as well as the boundaries of the listed counties, including independent entities located within the boundaries of the key city and the listed counties (unless otherwise listed separately)."
When a military installation or Government - related facility(whether or not specifically named) is located partially within more than one city or county boundary, the applicable per diem rate for the entire installation or facility is the higher of the rates which apply to the cities and / or counties, even though part(s) of such activities may be located outside the defined per diem locality.
