Contract Documents

The Request for Lease Proposal (RLP) template describes the criteria that VA will use to evaluate offers. The Lease template describes VA's space requirements. Only GSA approved templates are authorized for use. Current templates should be accessed through the GREX system.

Lease Design Narrative (LDN)

The LDN includes the minimum agency specific requirements that shall be included in all major and mid-level solicitations for Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) and Health Care Center (HCC) leases. Additional project specific requirements can and should be added when risk assessments identify necessary additions. The LDN is recommended for minor CBOC and HCC lease solicitations for both new and existing construction with the understanding that some items/requirements may need to be adjusted as necessary depending on the scope of the lease. The LDN incorporates VA specific lease design criteria and is to be used instead of VA Construction Standards and Design Criteria found elsewhere.
