GSA's Analysis of the Alignment of LEED v4 With Federal Green Building Requirements
GSA is seeking public input on its analysis of the latest version of the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED v4) green building certification system and its alignment with Federal green building requirements. GSA is also seeking public input on several questions related to the Government's use of LEED v4 and future GSA reviews of green building certification systems. GSA used the findings from its supplemental review to consult with other Federal agencies in the EISA 436(h) Interagency Ad-hoc Discussion Group (Interagency Discussion Group) on the Federal Government's use of LEED v4. GSA will be using the deliberations from the Interagency Discussion Group as well as public input from this Federal Register notice and a to-be-scheduled public listening session to augment GSA's October 25, 2013 recommendation to the Secretary of Energy. The information being asked for in this notice is not for the purpose of a proposed GSA rulemaking or a GSA regulation.
