United States Department of State, Bureau of Overseas Building Operations
In 1997, AFE started our support of the Department of State and their office of Foreign Building Operations (FBO), until 2001, when our records show FBO was upgraded to Bureau level and changed it's name to the Bureau of Overseas Building Operations (OBO). Since then AFE has had a member in every US-owned Embassy and Consulate around the globe, and provides proprietary certification training to the number of facilities maintenance & engineering professionals OBO employs at these facilities.
