Organizational Note

The Property Review Board was established by Executive Order 11508, February 10, 1970. The Board reviewed reports made by the Administrator of General Services on Federal real property surveyed and found to be not in use, underutilized, or not put to optimal use. The Board then made recommendations to the President in regards to use or disposition of these specific parcels of real property. The Board was abolished and superseded by the Federal Property Council, which was established by Executive Order 11724, June 25, 1973.
