GSA Launches Total Workplace Initiative
GSA recently launched a new initiative that will help federal executive branch agencies save money and increase productivity. GSA’s Total Workplace initiative provides resources and expertise to encourage agencies to reduce their office space, improve space utilization rates, foster collaboration, cut spending on information technology, and increase energy efficiency. Ultimately, in a time of shrinking budgets, this initiative will save taxpayer dollars and better serve the American people.
Under this program, GSA is able to fund the upfront purchase cost of a client agency’s furniture and information technology in both federally owned and leased space as a “lease-to-own” agreement. GSA and the client agency will enter into a term agreement that will spread the cost of the purchase over the useful life of the item(s) funded: a five-year period for furniture, and three years for information technology. This lease-to-own model transfers ownership of the item(s) to the client agency at the end of the lease term. Move costs are not included in this initial offering.
Please visit GSA’s Total Workplace page to learn more about this program.
