General Services Administration chief Dan Tangherlini told a Capitol Hill roundtable Tuesday that public-private partnerships are one approach the agency could take to reduce federal real estate, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Melissa Dawkins writes that many agencies are re-evaluating real estate costs as budget cuts under sequestration continue.

“This need to use space more effectively coupled with the transformational effect of technology in our offices is changing the way we work,” according to the report.

Lou Barletta, chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee on economic development, public buildings and emergency management, told the roundtable private companies could also help develop and restore federal properties.

Dawkins reports the Obama administration has proposed legislation to create a civilian equivalent of the Base Realignment and Closure process.
