During an interview at the 2011 GreenGov Symposium, General Services Administration Urban Development and Good Neighbor Director Frank Giblin said that the federal government is considering sustainability factors in the siting and construction of its buildings, including access to public transportation and the structure’s potential use as a public resource. Nancy Gillis, director of federal supply chain emissions at the agency said that environmental sustainability is being considered along with cost and mission goals as the federal government weighs procurement purchases. Ms. Gillis, who chairs an interagency group that addresses supply chain sustainability issues for the federal government, sad that procurement officials are considering not only the environmental footprint of products but company supply chain footprints also.
