Repairs and Alterations Backlog at the General Services Administration [June 12, 2020] [open pdf - 1MB]
From the Summary: "The General Services Administration (GSA), often referred to as 'the government's landlord,' provides workspace for 1.2 million federal employees across more than 50 federal agencies. Half of the space that tenant agencies occupy (183.8 million square feet) is located in buildings that GSA owns. As the property owner, GSA is responsible for ensuring that repairs and alterations (R&A) are completed in a timely manner. When R&A needs are deferred, a number of negative consequences may result, including health and safety code violations, deterioration of building systems, increased operating costs, and decreased asset value. For GSA-owned buildings, which have an average age of 49 years, R&A projects are often essential for extending the life of the property. Over the past four decades, GSA has accumulated a multibillion-dollar R&A liability."
