GSA Plan Would let Agencies Buy IT, Related Services Under One Contract
February 22, 2012
The General Services Administration will be offering a new way for agencies to buy combinations of professional services and information technology, officials have announced.
The contract, called Integrations, will allow agencies to buy multiple services needed when adding, updating or replacing technology through one vehicle, instead of piecing together services from a variety of federal supply schedules and governmentwide contracts.
"While GSA's Schedules program offers technology and other professional services on an a la carte basis, agencies have asked us to provide a total professional services solution, which often requires acquisition of multiple services across separate functional areas," Mary Davie, assistant commissioner of GSA's Federal Acquisition Service Office of Integrated Technology Services, said in a post on her blog Tuesday.
