The mission of GSA’s Public Buildings Service (PBS) is to provide a superior workplace for the federal worker and superior value to the American taxpayer. The vision is to be the best real estate organization in the world.
PBS is the landlord of the civilian federal government, with a total inventory of over 345 million square feet of workspace for a million federal employees in 2,000 American communities. This comprises over 1,600 government-owned buildings, or approximately 55 percent of GSA's total inventory. The remaining 45 percent is in privately owned leased facilities.
