U.S. General Services Administration Acting Administrator Daniel Tangherlini has said a federal strategic sourcing program has helped agencies save $300 million from the procurement of goods and services, the Washington Business Journal reported.

Jill Aitoro writes that Tangherlini told a House subcommittee hearing Tuesday that careful planning helps government offices scout for prime service providers and manage the purchases.

Tangherlini added that the GSA plans to extend the program in the next two years to not only include office supplies, package delivery, telecommunications and print services acquisition but also the purchase of cleaning products, tools and wireless devices.

The House Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government hearing was called to examine reforms in the GSA following a report about over-budget spending at an agency conference near Las Vegas.

MSPB said in its congressional budget justification the president’s budget request of $42.3M represents a 10 percent cut to the board’s current funding level and would result in a workforce reduction if enacted.
