Public Buildings Service Mid-Atlantic Region Project Mandates Green Purchasing Requirements

The solicitation was prepared by a cross-organizational team, including representation from the Mid-Atlantic Region Sustainability Council, Acquisition Management Division, Facilities Management and Services Programs Division, and the Pittsburgh Field Office.
