The Federal Protective Service (FPS) is required to provide protection for over a million federal employees and civilians employed or attending different federal buildings owned or rented by the General Services Administration (GSA). The FPS is protecting the amenities of a terrorist attack, such as the one encountered on September 11, 2001, with the bombing of the twin towers and the bombing of Oklahoma City. FPS has hired over one thousand and two hundred full-time staff and nearly thirteen thousand and two hundred contract security officers to secure the buildings. The FPS has developed a Risk Assessment and Management Program (RAMP) system, with an aim of enabling danger evaluation as well guard administration system (Office, 2017). Risk Assessment and Management Program (RAMP) scheme be mandated to supply FPS by the means to evaluate dangers at federal amenities as well as improving its capability to scrutinize and authenticate the contracted security personnel are taught and licensed before being sent to federal amenities. RAMP had not authenticate the federal facility information provided by GSA to FSA thereby were not useful to the agency. The training of the contract guards and their certification necessary for their deployment has faced with challenges due to lack of a process to verify the information before entering it to RAMP. RAMP has not incorporated government security because it had no time include the standards (Office, 2017).

Security as provided by FPS and those of Commercial Building

The commercial building security is the responsibility of the owner or the tenants. The owner or tenant will engage FPS or security agents in securing the building. No law requires private commercial buildings to be guarded. Shielding government is a requirement that must be met by FPS. The occupants of the buildings which the government has leased will be subjected to security checks during their entry into the premises. In commercial buildings, private security guards will engage the people entering the building into screening to erasure that they are not harmed or carrying any explosives (Reese, 2010).

Weakness in the Protocol

The FPS is mandated to protect GSA facilities, but there is a challenge lying on (Facility Security Committee) FSC structure because there are many parties involved. The party includes FPS, GSA and tenant agency representative. The FSC has no elaborate procedure to be followed in decision-making and implementation of the measures recommended by FPS. The tenant representative may not have any security knowledge or experience necessary (Imoukhuede, 2015).

Security on Federal Buildings

The FPS provides the physical security measure to commercial buildings. The guards are deployed to look at the activities taking place to a great malls and shops. Although physical security may not be controlled to a large extent like the governmental facilities, the FPS endeavors to ensure the safety. The building facility security measures are left with the GSA which ensures that there is an established relationship between it and the agents or owner of the building. Security decisions and processes likely to affect the structure is subject to the FPS but subject to getting the mandate to guard the building against the owner. The GSA is responsible for issuing normal protection as that provided by commercial building operators. The security entails the provision of guards, access control, alarm system as well as Closed Circuit Television Surveillance (CCTV) system. The protection depends on the location of the building, geographical factors such as traffic patterns and the configuration of the house.


The FPS is mandated to protect federal employees and facilities against threats including terror attacks. The protocols have been developed to deal with the matter of enhancing the security of the facilities. The increase in some security personnel of guarding the facilities ensures the buildings and its occupants are safe.
