WINNING ENTRIES SELECTED IN GSA FY 2013 ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FOR REAL PROPERTY INNOVATION

For this year's Achievement Award program, GSA sought entries demonstrating innovation, creativity and best practices in four categories of Federal real property: Asset Management, Sustainability, Workplace Innovation and Best Adopted Practices.  GSA received a total of 56 entries from 13 Federal agencies for this year's program, resulting in an extremely competitive field.  Submitted entries included a wide variety of projects from across the Federal sector, covering a broad range of real property areas, technical specialties and geographic locations.  Some entries focus on a single facility, while others describe wide-range frameworks that are national in scope.  An independent panel of real property professionals reviewed and evaluated the entries in Asset Management, Sustainability, Workplace Innovation and Best Adopted Practices categories.      

The competition resulted in one winning entry in the Asset Management category, one winning entry in the Sustainability category, one entry in the Workplace Innovation category and one winning entry in the Best Adopted Practices category. GSA will honor twelve exemplary entries, including the four winning entries, at an Awards Ceremony on October 1, 2013 in Washington, D.C.
