In this role, Dr. Mukherjee will assist in providing expertise and counsel to GSA as they seek innovative solutions to acquisition policy and ways to address the highest priority federal acquisition challenges.
The GAP FAC’s primary goal is to “drive regulatory, policy and process changes to embed climate and sustainability considerations in federal acquisitions.” Dr. Mukherjee, who is a professional engineer with a PhD in civil engineering, brings his significant expertise in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and green building certification development and implementation to his role on the Advisory Committee.
