GSA Starts Procurement ‘Hallways’ to Foster Strategic Sourcing

ContractSigningThe General Services Administration has partnered with the Strategic Sourcing Leadership Council to develop strategic sourcing processes for information technology, administration and human resources procurement activities, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Stephanie Wasko writes these processes, called “hallways,” are intended to help a common commodity manager lead a team in establishing procurement best practices, standards and pricing transparency.

GSA recently worked with the Office of Management and Budget to pilot a prices paid portal in order to provide visibility into the pricing of purchased products and services across federal agencies and drive down total cost of ownership.

Wasko reports the “hallways” are also intended to ease the procurement process, provide a wider range of purchasing options, boost opportunities for small businesses and foster interagency information sharing and collaboration.
