“As government agencies transition to pre-pandemic facility occupancy levels, demand is growing for healthier indoor spaces,” said Sean McCrady, Director, Asset and Sustainability Performance, Real Estate Properties at UL. “Operators of government buildings will need to address tenant and occupant concerns by creating indoor environments that promote occupant health and well-being. UL is here to help.”

GSA processes streamline the government sales process with pre-established prices and terms that government buyers can buy from a company. Based on GSA contract terms, UL’s Healthy Building services are available at all agencies, are unlimited, and have no set amount for the number of services available to order. Through terms negotiated with the GSA, the procuring government entity will receive a 5% service discount if five or more buildings require air quality testing and analysis.
While federal agencies use GSA contracts to purchase products and services, state and local governments can also use GSA purchasing power for their needs. UL’s Healthy Building Services are available for purchase by federal, state, and local governments. Special purchases of disaster recovery services are also available through this contract.
