Section 436(h) of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) requires GSA to evaluate high-performance building certification systems and provide the findings to the Secretary of Energy who, in consultation with the Department of Defense and GSA, formally identifies system(s) to be used across the federal government. GSA's Office of Federal High-Performance Buildings has just completed and published its High-Performance Building Certification Systems Review Findings Report (Findings Report). This report summarizes GSA's formal review of five systems that passed an initial market analysis screening (LEED, Green Globes, Living Building Challenge, BOMA BEST, and BREEAM). These systems were assessed against a set of review criteria to evaluate how they were developed and how effectively the systems align with current high-performance federal building requirements.
GSA's draft recommendations are included in the materials for the May 28 meeting of the Green Building Advisory Committee, and are published on its website (http://www.gsa.gov/gbac). To assist GSA in its review and enrich its set of draft recommendations, GSA is seeking additional comments from the public.
Procedures for Attendance and Public Comment
GSA asks that stakeholders compile comments and questions into a single submission per each organization and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, by Monday, July 15, 2019.
