GSA Starts Effort to Improve Cybersecurity in Procurements

May 20, 2013

The General Services Administration is seeking industry input as it develops standard contract language to ensure cybersecurity measures are taken in federal procurements.

GSA and the Defense Department are required by an executive order to provide recommendations for standardizing cybersecurity contract requirements by June.

In a request for information issued last week, GSA posed nearly 40 questions to industry, including:

* What policies, practices, or acquisition processes should change in order to achieve cybersecurity in federal acquisitions?

* How does industry handle and address cybersecurity incidents that occur in procurements? Do they aggregate this information for future use and how do they use it?
