A Stimulating Conversation About GSA Buildings and that Stimulus Thing Awaits You

Posted By Guy Timberlake, The American Small Business Coalition, LLC, Friday, April 10, 2009
Here's the deal:

If you provide services related to buildings... No wait, let me try that again. If you
don't provide services related to buildings, you may want to consider doing so.

Why you ask?

First reason, PBS (or GSA's Public Buildings Service for the neophytes) owns or leases 8,600 properties, maintains an inventory of more than 354 million square feet of workspace for 1.1 million federal employees, and preserves more than 480 historic properties.

Second reason, Ms. Amanda Fredriksen is taking time out of her schedule to join us on April 23rd at the Sheraton Premiere Tysons (along with four other senior officials from GSA) and will participate in a panel to give all of you the ole' what fer' about everything they can squeeze into ninety minutes about what opportunities are going to look like as a result of the GSA budget AND the impact of stimulus spending.

Third reason, check out this summary of Amanda Fredriksen's bio below and then you tell me.

See you on the 23rd!

Amanda Fredriksen currently serves as the Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) Project Manager for Support to the Public Buildings Service (PBS) Regarding American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Initiatives.  This project is focused on providing acquisition support for PBS initiatives outlined in the Recovery Act.  In this role, Ms. Fredriksen is responsible for the following key areas:  acquisition management, communications, reporting, and performance management. 

Most recently, Ms. Fredriksen served as the first Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the Office of General Supplies and Services (GSS) within FAS.  GSS provides customer agencies with policy compliant methods of acquiring products and services in a timely manner and at competitive prices in order to assist them with accomplishing their missions.  The GSS Portfolio combines three formerly distinct business lines under one management structure.  In partnership with the Assistant Commissioner for GSS, Amanda directs and oversees the diverse business line programs of Global Supply Operations, Multiple Award Schedules Acquisition Operations and Personal Property Management.
