House passes second bill to speed sale of excess federal property By Charles S. Clark Government Executive March 20, 2012For the second time in six weeks, the House on Tuesday passed a bill to streamline the process of selling off unneeded federal property, this time approving a version designed to incentivize agencies by giving them a share of proceeds.
Unlike a bill the House passed on Feb. 7 to create a semiautonomous civilian property board, H.R. 665 would create a pilot program directing the General Services Administration to dispose of unneeded federal real estate "in an expedited and cost-effective manner with the goal of maximizing taxpayer savings and profit," noted a press release from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which reported the bill. (The bill passed in February, sponsored by Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., came through the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.)
The legislation the House approved Tuesday would create a "single, comprehensive and descriptive database" of all real property under the government's control. In addition, GSA and the Office of Management and Budget would maintain a rolling list of the top 15 high-value, excess federal property to auction off at fair market value.
