Background: The Administrator of GSA established the Committee on June 20, 2011 (Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 118) pursuant to Section 494 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA, 42 U.S.C. 17123). Under this authority, the Committee advises GSA on the rapid transformation of the Federal building portfolio to sustainable technologies and practices. The Committee reviews strategic plans, products and activities of the Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings and provides advice regarding how the Office can accomplish its mission most effectively.

The Green Leasing task group will propose recommendations in support of GSA's development of model commercial leasing provisions, a requirement of the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2015 (42 U.S.C. 17062).

The Energy Use Intensity (EUI) task group will propose recommendations following the motion of a committee member to “develop guidelines for creating a new energy intensity metric [to reflect impacts of] densified facilities, centrally located workplace sites . . . and expansion of telework and hoteling.”

The teleconferences will allow the task groups to coordinate the development of consensus recommendations to the full Committee, which will in turn decide whether to proceed with formal advice to GSA based upon these recommendations. Additional background information and updates will be posted on GSA's Web site at​gbac.

July 27, 2016 Committee Teleconference/Web Meeting Agenda:
