Under this authority, the Committee provides independent policy advice and recommendations to GSA to increase the economic and operational performance of the federal building portfolio and its positive impact on organizational effectiveness, human health and wellbeing. The Committee has recently proposed two new task groups. The High Performance Building Adoption task group will pursue the motion of a committee member to provide recommendations to ‘‘accelerate the adoption of high performance [Federal] buildings.’’ The Health and Wellness task group will pursue the motion of a committee member to ‘‘develop guidelines to integrate health and wellness features into government facilities programs.’’ The conference calls will allow the task groups to coordinate the development of consensus recommendations to the full Committee, which will, in turn, decide whether to proceed with formal advice to GSA based upon these recommendations.
