NOTICE

The Federal Facilities Council (FFC) is a continuing activity of the Board on Infrastructure and the Constructed Environment of the National Research Council (NRC). The purpose of the FFC is to promote continuing cooperation among the sponsoring federal agencies and between the agencies and other elements of the building community in order to advance building science and technology—particularly with regard to the design, construction, acquisition, evaluation, and operation of federal facilities. The following agencies sponsor the FFC:

Department of the Air Force, Office of the Civil Engineer

Department of the Air Force, Air National Guard

Department of the Army, Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management

Department of Defense, Federal Facilities Directorate

Department of Energy

Department of the Interior, Office of Managing Risk and Public Safety

Department of the Navy, Naval Facilities Engineering Command

Department of State, Office of Overseas Buildings Operations

Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Facilities Management

Federal Aviation Administration

Food and Drug Administration

General Services Administration, Public Buildings Service

Indian Health Service

International Broadcasting Bureau

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Facilities Engineering Division

National Institutes of Health

National Institute of Standards and Technology, Building and Fire Research Laboratory

National Science Foundation

Smithsonian Institution, Facilities Engineering and Operations

U.S. Coast Guard

U.S. Postal Service, Engineering Division

As part of its activities, the FFC periodically publishes reports that have been prepared by committees of government employees. Because these committees are not appointed by the NRC, they do not make recommendations, and their reports are considered FFC publications rather than NRC publications.

International Standard Book Number 0-309-07643-9

Available and emerging information technologies hold the promise of enhancing the quality of federal workplaces; supporting worker productivity; improving capital asset management, programming, and decision making; reducing project delivery time; and changing how buildings are constructed and operated. Federal agencies, however, face a significant challenge in identifying technologies that will justify the investment of time, dollars, and resources, will have the flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances over the longer term, and will not be obsolete before they are deployed. To begin to address these challenges, the Federal Facilities Council (FFC) sponsored a symposium entitled "Emerging Information Technologies for Facilities Owners: Research and Practical Applications" at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., on October 19-20, 2000.
