GSA Debuts GIS-Powered Map of Federal Real Property Holdings; Emily Murphy Comments

The General Services Administration has introduced an interactive tool for the general public to access geographical information about buildings the federal government has owned or managed since the beginning of fiscal year 2017.

GSA said Wednesday the tool is powered by a geographic information system and contains  data from the Federal Real Property Profile Management System.

The map includes search and filter functions intended to help users find government facilities by agency and determine if the property is utilized, underutilized or not utilized.

GSA Administrator Emily Murphy, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, said the agency released the tool in an effort to simplify the federal property search process for industry stakeholders and the general public.

“Enhancing the quality and usability of the federal government’s real property data will boost transparency, help better utilize government assets and make it easier to identify properties for disposal,” Murphy added.
