Our GSA employees are a community dedicated to the mission of providing high quality services that are timely, fiscally responsible, environmentally sustainable and convenient for our customers.
GSA delivers a host of services including building maintenance, property acquisition, architectural, engineering, construction, contract and procurement, transportation and child care services, to name a few. The GSA Community strives not only to provide these services but to facilitate collaborative and innovative approaches in our efforts.
This collaboration and innovation can be seen in many of our projects including the County's Local Government EV Fleet Demonstration project, a collaboration of 10 Bay Area public agencies and the Bay Area Climate Collaborative, to purchase 90 EVs and charging stations for local fleets. We have increased bicycle racks at many County facilities and converted an unused area of a parking garage into a secure location for employee bicycle commuters (called "AlcoBike"). The Grounds Division utilizes a Bay Friendly Landscaping program which includes the use of drought tolerant plants. Under the leadership of Alameda County GSA, the Regional Renewable Energy Procurement Project (R-REP) will bring renewable energy to up to 186 facilities across 19 Bay Area public agencies. Our Purchasing Department is working towards implementing a procurement accreditation program as a mechanism to support departments in their procurement efforts while adhering to the County's policies and procedures.
While the GSA Community largely focuses on support services for Alameda County departments and other public agencies, we are not so unlike other County departments. Our work has a direct impact on our communities. We build structures that transform communities including libraries and youth centers; we provide and offer opportunities for local businesses; we work towards ensuring that County work practices minimize the negative impacts to the environment. We take great pride in our work - from the GSA community to the Alameda County Community - and look forward to working with you.
