Leased Facilities

Thursday, November 7, 2019

Description

Federal agencies and the US Postal Service (USPS) must ensure that facilities they lease are accessible as required by the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA). Standards issued under the ABA, which apply to facilities funded by the federal government or USPS, provide minimum requirements for facilities or buildings newly leased by federal agencies or the USPS. These provisions address accessible routes, parking, toilet and bathing facilities, sales and service counters, joint use areas, fire alarms, and other elements and spaces. Presenters will review these requirements and explain how they apply to leased facilities. A representative from the General Services Administration, which leases facilities on behalf of many federal agencies, will join the Access Board in conducting this session.
