Fed Policy Forum 2015

Federal Leadership in Asset Management Policy Forum

Tuesday and Wednesday, October 20th and 21st, 2015

8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. EDT

The Federal Facilities Council (FFC) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and the Asset Leadership Network (ALN) are hosting a two day training and educational forum to improve Federal asset management policies and strategies. Today the Federal government is one of the largest asset owners in the world, yet the Federal government remains slow to adopt policies and strategies that could redirect potentially billions of dollars in the American economy to more productive use.

Federal mandates cover sustainability (such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, energy and water use), improved facility space utilization (including facility consolidation and disposition of underutilized assets), and resilience (such as the ability to adapt to climate change and other impacts over time). While these responsibilities are often parceled out to different organizational components and/or implemented inconsistently on a project-by-project basis, greater efficiencies and chances of success may be realized by strategically incorporating these combined goals into agency portfolio planning and management processes.

This forum brings together national and international leaders and experts who will discuss a vision for new policies and strategies designed to generate dramatic, positive changes for Federal asset and asset management performance. This forum will:

  • Define asset management principles critical to performance,
  • Evaluate risks and opportunities driving performance improvement, and
  • Discuss new value propositions, strategies and objectives for change.

The forum’s objective is to create a basis for changing asset management policies and strategies that will help the Federal government make better use of its assets and help America prosper.

This forum will be held October 20th and 21st at the National Academy of Sciences Building at 2101 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC.
