4. What is the background?

a. This publication is a summary report of the Federal Government's real property assets, as reported to the General Services Administration's (GSA's) Federal Real Property Profile (FRPP) reporting system. It provides an overview of Federal real property assets categorized in three major areas—buildings, land, and structures. Descriptions of specific use classifications are located in the Appendix of the report.

b. The detailed information for this summary report is held in a password-protected Web-based database. This database allows agency representatives to update data on-line in real time, and to produce ad hoc reports. The FRPP reporting system provides information regarding Federal real property holdings to stakeholders including the Congress, the Federal community and the public. Its purpose is to assist Federal asset managers with their stewardship responsibilities by offering a real-time environment for on-line updates.

c. The FRPP reporting system is a redesign of the former Worldwide Inventory data collection and reporting system. GSA and the System Design Focus Group, comprised of representatives from the majority of Federal agencies with landholding authority, gathered user input and defined system and data requirements for the improved system design.

d. To ensure accuracy, GSA requested that agencies confirm their FY 2002 data summary figures prior to publication of the FRPP. Most agencies provided data based on their real property holdings as of September 30, 2002. In a few instances, data provided in previous years has been used where updated information was unavailable. This is noted on the list of contributing agencies. The agency list and status of updates and confirmations is provided as part of the Federal Real Property Profile.

5. Who uses the Federal Real Property Profile? The Federal Real Property Profile, managed by the GSA, constitutes a centralized source of information for the Congress, Office of Management and Budget, General Services Administration, and other Federal agencies, as well as universities, libraries, trade associations, the press, the private sector and the general public.

6. How does the Federal Government benefit from the Federal Real Property Profile? The Federal Government uses the real property profile, in combination with other available data, in: Planning space needs, promoting fuller utilization management and property accounting surveys, evaluating funding requests for acquisition of real property, and facilitating on-site inspection activities.

7. When is the Federal Real Property Profile published? It is published every year and reflects real property data submitted by landholding agencies as of the last day of the fiscal year (September 30).

8. How can we obtain a copy of the Federal Real Property Profile? You will find the Federal Real Property Profile for FY 2002 on the GSA Web site at http://www.gsa.gov/​realpropertyprofile. There you will be able to read, print or download this report. You can also obtain a copy from the Real Property Policy Division (MPR), General Services Administration, 1800 F Street, NW., Washington, DC 20405.
