Federal agencies are eligible for the Adopt-a-Practice cash award. Just adopt a real property practice, document its use, and enter!
GSA has categorized past best practices and success stories submitted by the federal real estate community into the E-Practice Library. This database includes practices that can help your organization manage its real property assets to improve customer service and save money.
First, go to the database and find a practice from another agency that fits your strategic goals. Then, as you use it, document how it was adapted to fulfill your agency’s needs.
Entering to win the Adopt-a-Practice award is easy. You can submit the entry online any time during the year. For the October 7, 2004, award ceremony, the entry deadline is May 20, 2004. An independent jury evaluates entries and selects one team or individual to win. A winning individual is awarded $5,000; a winning team is awarded $10,000.
The good news is that agencies using these best practices win every day with improved workplace performance!
