Federal Real Property: Additional Documentation of Decision Making Could Improve Transparency of New Disposal Process, Report to Congressional Committees [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Highlights: "GAO [Government Accountability Office] designated federal real property management, including the disposal of properties, as a high-risk area in 2003. FASTA [Federal Assets Sale and Transfer Act] included a provision for GAO to review the recommendations and selection processes such as those used in the first round of identifying and recommending high-value properties as candidates for disposal. This report examines: (1) how stakeholders implemented FASTA to identify and evaluate high-value properties as potential disposal candidates and (2) stakeholder views on the extent to which FASTA helped agencies with the disposal of unneeded high-value properties and addressed long-standing challenges in disposing of federal properties."
