GSA Searches for Best Practices and Innovative Strategies in Real Property

Every day, agencies across the federal government are doing innovative, groundbreaking work that makes a real difference in the lives of the American people. While these efforts are important, too often they happen in isolation. In doing so, we miss a very real opportunity. Though the missions of federal agencies can often be vastly different, there are valuable lessons that can be learned from each others’ efforts. Data-dot-gov-rtb-1

That is why for the past 18 years, GSA has held an Achievement Award for Real Property Best Practices and Innovation. The Award program serves as a catalyst for federal agencies to share best practices and innovative and successful initiatives implemented to improve their management of real property.

It has attracted more than 500 unique ideas throughout the federal real property community in three categories:  

  • Asset Management
  • Sustainability
  • Workplace Innovation

We want to ensure that we are not missing out on any outstanding programs, which is why we want to hear from you. We want to see the most innovative examples of real property management the government has to offer.

Entries will be accepted through September 8, 2015. All federal employees must review and complete an online application posted on GSA’s Real Property Awards Website at and submit their electronic copies to

An independent panel of distinguished government and industry experts will judge all submitted entries. Entries will be highlighted in the Office of Government-wide Policy, Office of Asset and Transportation Management online publication and posted on GSA’s website.
