Tom Sharpe: GSA Moves to Simplify Federal Acquisition Service

GSAThe General Services Administration has taken steps to update its strategy for the Federal Acquisition Service program, aiming to simplify transactions with customers, according to FAS Commissioner Tom Sharpe.

“This is the right time to implement these changes to GSA’s supply program and they are one part of a new vision we are outlining for FAS over the next year,” Sharpe wrote in a blog post published Jan. 30.

GSA plans to streamline its vendor function to keep in line with evolving agency missions, Sharpe says.

FAS uses stocked inventory and warehouse distribution centers to move products and plans to shift to a wholesale supply business model for direct shipping to customers.

“By working closely with our vendors, we have an opportunity to support our federal partners with the value and services they need, through a system that is suited to today’s marketplace,” he added.
