GSA Planning New Strategic Sourcing IT, Services Vehicles

StrategicSourcingThe General Services Administration is planning to launch 10 strategic sourcing vehicles over the next two years for agencies to acquire products and services used throughout the federal government, the agency’s acting administrator said in a blog post.

Dan Tangherlini said GSA is working with the Office of Management and Budget and other agencies to create the government-wide vehicles for items such as office supplies, wireless tools and cleaning products.

GSA is teaming with acquisition professionals at the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, and other agencies to use strategic sourcing for wireless and software spending, Tangherlini said.

GSA has also formed a team focused on janitorial and sanitation supplies and another for maintenance, repair and operations supplies.

Tangherlini also said the agency is aiming for small business participation in the vehicles, estimating more than 76 percent of contract funds spent on a office supply vehicle went to small businesses.

OMB required GSA to launch five new strategic sourcing vehicles for fiscal years 2013 and 2014 under a directive (click here for ExecutiveGov‘s coverage of that directive).
