The General Services Administration (GSA) is the nation’s largest public real estate organization that leases spaces such as labs, offices, clinics, and warehouses for federal agencies all over the country. When pursuing a GSA lease, there are certain operational requirements that must be met in order to be compliant, which is why it’s important to work with a company that understands and can handle GSA lease requirements.
