GSA Public Buildings Service Selects Kahua for Construction Project Management Software
Kahua will help the GSA provide superior workplaces for civilian federal agencies at best value to the American taxpayer.
Alpharetta, GA – September 22, 2020 – Kahua, a leading provider of capital program and construction project management software, announced today that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Public Buildings Service (PBS) has selected Kahua software as its new enterprise-wide project management information system.
As the landlord for the civilian federal government, the Public Buildings Service (PBS) acquires space on behalf of the federal government through new construction and leasing, and acts as a caretaker for federal properties across the country. PBS owns or leases 8,681 assets, maintains an inventory of more than 370 million square feet of workspace for 1.1 million federal employees, and preserves more than 500 historic properties. Under the terms of the agreement, PBS will standardize on Kahua across all eleven GSA PBS regions.
Kahua was selected as part of an open and competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) process to implement a secure central system of record for all PBS projects. GSA’s objectives for the new solution include increasing project team productivity and promoting collaboration to facilitate more effective delivery practices that will improve project and program outcomes. Kahua’s selection was based on a combination of functionality, extensibility, user experience and security.
