The law's premise is simple: when buildings are maintained properly by trained and certified facility managers, they will perform better at lower cost, protect occupant health, safety and productivity and ultimately be worth more at their time of disposition, thereby providing a return on investment to the American taxpayer.
Federal facility managers, who are charged with maintaining the world's largest real estate portfolio, have long sought access to education and training to ensure that investments are made not just in the physical infrastructure, but also in the individuals charged with maintaining it. The FBPTA makes that training a priority!
Since the law was enacted, the General Services Administration (GSA) has worked with facilities representatives from various landholding agencies, IFMA and other industry associations to identify core competencies necessary for Federal personnel performing building operations and maintenance, energy management, safety, and design functions. They then identified industry recognized courses and certifications that encompass those core competencies.
For complete program information visit the GSA Facilities Management Institute.
Both Federal personnel and non-Federal personnel performing building operations and maintenance, energy management, safety, and design functions under a contract with a Federal department or agency must comply. This includes current personnel and new hires. (Note: The non-Federal personnel/Federal contractors portion of the Act will be implemented at a later date.)
GSA has identified three broad "functional roles" or professional categories of Federal buildings personnel. These include:
GSA has created an online Skills Assessment tool available at FMI.gov. This self-assessment tool will support your need to benchmark and update your knowledge, skills and abilities as they relate to the core competencies. After answering questions about your current training and responsibilities, the tool will create a gap analysis and a personalized development plan.
Supervisors will help their staff identify responsibilities and specialty areas to allow each staff member to complete their own self-assessment. After their staff have completed their assessments, supervisors can review staff's gap analysis and may identify performances as not required or already completed (either from on-the-job or other training).
