Our staff review appraisers achieve professionalism by concluding and approving supportable conclusions of value, based on training, knowledge, experience, and judgment, in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions (UASLFA, aka Yellow Book). In addition, specific supplemental agency appraisal requirements can be considered when preparing appraisals under the agency's authority. Each GSA Real Property Utilization and Disposal region has appraisers that maintain a General State Certification, and many belong to national professional organizations and have achieved professional designations.
