About this Report
The purpose of the GSA FY 2017 AFR is to inform the President, Congress, and the American people about how GSA has used Federal resources entrusted to the Agency in 2017 to reliably deliver cost-effective real estate, acquisition and technology services to the Federal Departments and Agencies it serves. Providing these services at a good value to our federal customers allows them to focus more of their resources on meeting their core missions to the American people. GSA has chosen to produce both an AFR and an Annual Performance Plan (APR) for FY 2017. GSA will include its FY 2017 APR with its Congressional Budget Justification and will post this AFR on the Agency’s Web page.
This AFR provides high-level financial and highlighted performance results with assessments of controls, a summary of challenges, and GSA stewardship information. The AFR enables the President, Congress, and the public to assess GSA accomplishments and understand its financial position. The report satisfies the reporting requirements contained in the following laws, regulations, and Executive Orders:

The report will be delivered to Congress with the annual budget submission.
