Federal agencies have cut their office and warehouse footprint by approximately 21 million square feet over the past two fiscal years through the White House’s Freeze the Footprint initiative, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.

“Freeze the Footprint really has forced agencies to take a hard look at how they’re utilizing space and to challenge agencies to find ways to reduce their space,” Norman Dong, commissioner at the General Services Administration‘s Public Buildings Service, told reporter Michael O’Connell.

Dong added to the station that agencies should examine the highest and best use of their buildings to help them decide about whether to dispose a certain property or not.

He believes the approach would allow the federal government to leverage the value of its real estate assets, according to O’Connell’s report.
