GSA Asks for Public Comment on Federal Cybersecurity Measures; Dan Tangherlini Comments

Gsa_sealThe U.S. General Services Administration wants public comment on how to make the federal government more resilient as the agency improves its acquisition cybersecurity policies.

The GSA’s request for information is asking for recommendations that could help implement Executive Order 13636 on Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity and the Presidential Policy Directive-21 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, GSA said Monday.

Dan Tangherlini, GSA acting administrator, said, “The RFI is an important first step to a public private partnership that will help secure our nation’s infrastructure. Developing these cybersecurity procurement recommendations is a priority for GSA and the interagency working group.”

The GSA is working with a federal cybersecurity interagency working group for this project to collect feedback from hundreds of stakeholder representatives at a number of forums in industry, academia, and federal, state, and local government.

Suggestions from the public will be included in the final recommendations report to be issued in the early summer.
