Abstract:

The Public Buildings Service (PBS) within the General Services Administration (GSA) is the Federal government's real property manager responsible for the acquisition, design, construction, and operation and management of various types of space for Federal agencies. As part of its responsibility, the GSA must ensure the fire and life safety of the employees and visitors occupying the space under its control, protect Federal real and personal property assets, ensure continuity of the mission of occupant agencies, and provide safeguards to allow emergency forces to accomplish their missions if an incident occurs.
