Three portfolios in the NCA make up 55% of the AFD Inventory.
PWGSC is expanding the scope of its AFD because independent financial and customer evaluations of previous AFD contracts have acknowledged that it is efficient and responsive. AFD will not impair service delivery. AFD contracts are quality and performance-based, designed to ensure service levels are met or exceeded and that government workplace values - such as environmental Sustainability - are upheld. AFD enables the private sector to bring its real property expertise for the day to day management of federal properties, while enabling PWGSC to focus on being the government's strategic real property advisor.

PWGSC will focus on our key role as strategic real property advisor to government and remains accountable for all services provided to our customer departments, whether delivered in-house or through external service providers.
Departments will continue to contact PWGSC for service requests and use the National Service Call Center to obtain service.
New AFD incorporates lessons learned, industry best practices and more ambitious performance indicators to ensure the highest quality service delivery.
New contracts provide flexibility to increase AFD inventory by up to 10% and provides optional services for facility management, lease administration, commercial leasing and project delivery services ($200K >$1Million)
As opportunities present themselves, other assets and services will be assessed to determine whether they could also benefit from the efficiencies offered by AFD.
