The General Services Administration has started its work on a strategy to help government agencies deliver services to stakeholders by using new and emerging technologies.

Mary Davie, assistant commissioner of the integrated technology service office at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said Wednesday that industry partners and the interagency advisory panel for GSA’s Network Services 2020 program have completed the strategy for implementing NS2020.

Davie writes that GSA intends for agencies to use NS2020 the strategy for executing the digital government strategy, adopting cloud computing technologies, migrating to Internet Protocol version 6 and combining data center operations.

GSA plans to solicit information for two additional regional acquisitions in 2014 in order to replace aging contract vehicles and evaluate concepts for the NS2020 strategy, Davie said.
