The clearance currently expires on July 31, 2009. The Art-in-Architecture Program is the result of a policy decision made in January 1963 by GSA Administrator Bernard L. Boudin who had served on the Ad Hoc Committee on Federal Office Space in 1961–1962. The program has been modified over the years, most recently in 1996 when a renewed focus on commissioning works of art that are an integral part of the building’s architecture and adjacent landscape was instituted. The program continues to commission works of art from living American artists. One-half of one percent of the estimated construction cost of new or substantially renovated Federal buildings and U.S. courthouses is allocated for commissioning works of art.

    The General Services Administration (GSA) has various mission 
responsibilities related to the acquisition and provision supply,

resulting contracts may impose unique information collection and 
reporting requirements on contractors, not required by regulation, but 
necessary to evaluate particular program accomplishments, measure 
success in meeting program objectives, or adjust acquisition 
requirements. Leasehold acquisitions provide for real estate tax 
adjustments due to changes in real estate taxes on land and buildings 
occupied by the Government. In a leasehold acquisition, the lessor 
shall provide the following information regarding real estate taxes: 
(1) Any notice which may affect the valuation of land and buildings 
covered by this lease for real estate tax purposes; (2) Any notice of a
