VA has various authorities to dispose of vacant and underutilized real property assets. These authorities include, but are not limited to, direct sale, special legislation and transfer to other agencies. VA also partners with the General Services Administration (GSA) to dispose of unneeded real property assets. LASU uses these authorities and partnerships to help advance VA’s mission by streamlining VA’s real property portfolio.
CFM has created a Disposal Guide to help VA Facilities plan, implement, and execute projects to dispose of vacant and unneeded properties by explaining the various options available and the corresponding processes which should be followed when disposing of VA’s real property assets. This guide discusses the decision-making criteria when considering disposal of vacant buildings, structures and/or land; and provides disposal options available to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the priority in which to consider these options, and the required steps to complete a disposal for each of the options.
