General Services Administration chief Dan Tangherlini discussed the White House’s management agenda for the 21st century Wednesday during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing.

Tangherlini told lawmakers Wednesday in written testimony that the management agenda’s primary areas of focus will include efficiency, effectiveness and economic growth, as well as people and culture.

“As a provider of real estate, acquisition, and technology services to the federal government, the U.S. General Services Administration is uniquely positioned to help agencies in all four of these areas.” he said.

Tangherlini overviewed the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, which work to give agencies a streamlined approach to acquire commodities and cloud computing tools, respectively.

GSA is also pushing the Prices Paid portal to agencies with the goal of examining costs of common government-purchased goods and services.

In his remarks, Tangherlini also outlined the agency’s efforts to reduce real estate and upkeep facilities via rent investments through the Total Workplace Initiative and Zero Net Budget Authority.
