Why did we build the SFTool?

The General Services Administration is tasked with putting our nation’s public servants into efficient, healthy buildings and buying goods and services that provide maximum value to the taxpayer. With each high-performance building, waste and utility costs drop, people breathe better air and we conserve resources for future generations. Helping the Federal Government make sustainable decisions and acheive high-performance is our mission, but we built SFTool to inspire and prepare everyone to take action.
