2017 Space and Security Forum






We are pleased to report that the Federal Court Clerks Association sponsored 2017 Space and Security Forum that brought together court and Executive Branch partners to discuss important Space & Security issues was, by all accounts, a huge success.


The two-day conference was held in downtown Buffalo, New York on August 15 and August 16, 2017. The FCCA was honored to host this conference, which included plenary and breakout sessions with key members of the Administrative Office, United States Marshals Service, General Services Administration (GSA), and Federal Protective Service staff. The Forum was geared toward Court Unit Executives (district and bankruptcy clerks, chief probation and pretrial service officers, circuit executives, and assistant circuit executives for space) and their staff members who are responsible for facilities, rent and security-related concerns.


This Forum was an important part of Phase II of the Joint Judiciary/GSA Service Validation Initiative Training that was held last year. Topics included: the new agreement with the GSA that covers courthouses currently priced under the Return on Investment (ROI) methodology and conversion to actual operating expenses; overtime utility and energy savings policies; space assignment classifications in your courthouse, project development and estimating, and RWA processing; security in federal courthouses and emergency preparedness planning; GSA delegations; and no net new, space reduction and efficiency and integrated workplace initiative (IWI) projects. The Facility and Security Office of the Administrative Office led many of the discussions throughout the conference with joint participation with our executive branch partners. Staff members were on-hand to answer questions specific to individual court units.
