This contract will provide valuable commercial real estate data and information resources to enable individual and portfolio-wide management and evaluation of GSA’s owned and leased properties by the various PBS divisions and regions listed below:
Office of Portfolio Management and Customer Engagement: The market data, leasing data and comparable sale data (hereafter referred to as market data) allows PBS to better determine the appropriate strategy for an asset based on its competitive position in the market. The Real
Property Valuation Division uses the information to cross-check appraisals to confirm the subject/comparable property/buildings and that projected rental rates and/or sales prices are comparable to recent market transactions. It will also aid in monitoring how well PBS is operating its owned buildings.
Office of Property Disposal: The market data helps PBS validate independent appraiser valuations to ensure that GSA receives a fair price for properties that are selected for disposal.
Capital Investment Division: Provides knowledge of the local real estate markets to aid in ensuring that any new construction, major R&A or modernization projects will be cost effective.
Leasing and Analysis Divisions: Provides information on the rents and expenses in comparable buildings in local markets to ensure that the rents GSA charges to customer agencies, whether in leased or owned buildings, are consistent with the market.
