Overview of the Real Property Policy Division

The Real Property Policy Division develops, promotes and assesses compliance with management policies and regulations for the effective and efficient management of federal real property. We do this by:

  • Provide government-wide policy oversight and guidance for the acquisition, construction, use, management and disposal of federal real property.

  • Provide leadership in the development and maintenance of a centralized government-wide real property inventory system.

  • Develop regulations, standards and criteria to be issued by the administrator for the acquisition, construction, use, management and disposal of federal real property.

The Real Property Policy Division focuses on two areas: real property management and regulatory management.

Real estate management
Promote and support government-wide programs that improve the effectiveness of property management by federal agencies.

The Division helps federal agencies comply with executive orders, administrative initiatives and data collection requirements. We also support the Federal Real Estate Council, track progress on real estate performance, and provide tools to share information and help agencies analyze their real estate portfolios.

Regulatory Management
Oversees real estate policies under Federal Management Regulations 41 CFR 102-71 through 41 CFR 102-86 and issues direction through notices, bulletins, and letters of direction.

We analyze the impact of laws, decrees and international agreements; and through interagency working groups dealing with real estate issues affecting federal agencies.
