The General Services Administration has unveiled its new online acquisition tool to the public designed to provide information resources to contracting officers.
GSA built the Acquisition Gateway portal to help federal employees engage with acquisition officers and examine various contract vehicles.
“The public will have access to as much of the Acquisition Gateway as possible and will experience the same user-centric design as federal users,” said Tom Sharpe, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service.
“The Gateway will enable that access while protecting the integrity of critical federal data and the security of private information supplied by contractors and others,” Sharpe added.
The public can access information on service categories such as the project center, solutions finder, statement of work library, TechFAR hub, news and events feeds, releasable category-curated articles, Buy Online button and Contribute and Share button.
GSA initially created the portal in October 2014 to provide government employees access to information on goods and services by category.
