Disposal of Unneeded Federal Buildings: Legislative Propsals in the 112th Congress
Garrett Hatch (au)
Federal executive branch agencies hold an extensive real property portfolio that includes approx. 399,000 buildings, acquired over a period of decades to help agencies fulfill their diverse missions. Agencies hold buildings with a range of uses, including offices, health clinics, warehouses, and laboratories. As agenciesäó» missions change over time, so, too, do their real property needs, thereby rendering some assets less useful or unneeded altogether. For ex., the Dept. of Defense (DOD) reduced its force structure by 36% after the Cold War ended, and has engaged in several rounds of base realignments and installation closures. Real property disposition is the process by which federal agencies identify and then transfer, donate, or sell real property they no longer need. This report explains the real property disposal process, and then discusses some of the factors that have made disposition relatively inefficient and costly. It then examines four bills introduced in the 112th Congress that would address those problems: the Federal Real Property Asset Management Reform Act (S. 2178); the Excess Federal Building and Property Disposal Act (H.R. 665); and two bills titled the Civilian Property Realignment Act (H.R. 1734 and S. 2232) which are similar, but not identical. This report concludes with a discussion of policy options for enhancing both the disposal process and congressional oversight of it. Tables this is a print on demand report.
