This interagency briefing is scheduled for 40 minutes maximum to address utilizing new OSaaS – (Office Space as a Service) models for short term lease, swing space and for non-traditional real estate office leasing requirements.  This briefing will review successful models with FEMA and VA where OSaaS was implemented to meet agency needs for scaling of personnel, temporary space for renovations and requirements for reducing time to occupancy by 62%-75% compared to typical leasing models. Discussions will include cost benefit analysis of standard and OSaaS models to help agencies know when OSaaS models make sense.

New OSaaS models can be utilized with rea estate lease included or as a separate services contract that includes all operational components of facilities management and FF&E. OSaaS is highly flexible and customizable for specific agency functions and personnel needs and provides ease of use of one contract to manage.  In addition to its flexibility, OSaaS is considered for its effectiveness meeting initiatives in Real Estate Footprint Reduction as well as its impact on hiring and retention of federal employees.

This briefing is recommended for federal leasing program managers, contracting officers and leasing support personnel.
