DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 55 pages
The Amer. Recovery and Reinvest. Act of 2009 (ARRA) provided the Gen. Serv. Admin. (GSA) with $5.55 billion to invest in fed. buildings and promote economic recovery.

This report addresses the: (1) steps GSA has taken to implement the program and make its ARRA projects transparent to the public; (2) extent to which GSA¿s ARRA projects are helping the agency convert buildings to HPGB and addressing fed. energy and water conservation requirements and goals; and (3) extent to which GSA has identified potential risks to its ARRA program and developed strategies to mitigate those risks.
