General Services Administration chief Denise Turner Roth has highlighted the agency’s previous accomplishments over the last eight years as the current administration comes to a close.
Roth wrote in a blog post published Thursday that GSA demonstrated its ability “to be an innovative, active and adaptable agency” while the initiatives the agency tries to pursue change over time.
She cited the agency’s partnership with local communities and opportunities provided to small businesses as part of the Freeze the Footprint and in line with the Recovery Act to relocate agencies to new office spaces.
GSA’s Acquisition Gateway, which aims to help officials compare government-wide acquisition services, connect with acquisition professionals and explore product and service category hallways, has also reached 10,000 registered users in its first year.
The agency also kicked off the Technology Transformation Service in early 2016 to overhaul how GSA delivers technology to government, Roth writes.
She also cited GSA’s efforts to consolidate administrative functions to remove redundant support offices within each division.
“All of this is just a snapshot of the work that we are carrying out on behalf of our partner agencies and the American people,” Roth said.
“In the years ahead, GSA remains committed to exploring new ways we can continue delivering the best value in real estate, acquisition and technology services for government and the American people,” she added.
