What's Important and When
Capital Program Support
GSA must shape its Capital Program and portfolio decisions with consideration to their
context. The Local Portfolio Plan (LPP) and Asset Business Plan (ABP) are important
tools and typically are required by the Planning Call. The LPP helps to make GSA
portfolio decisions within the larger community, with respect to GSA's multi-asset
needs in that community. The ABP helps to make asset-specific project decisions, with
respect to each asset's holistic needs and GSA's long-term plans for the asset.
