Government-wide use of commercial satellite services through an acquisition program run by the General Services Administration and the Defense Department grew more than 10 percent in fiscal 2014, according to GSA official Mary Davie.

Davie, assistant commissioner of the integrated technology service office at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, writes in a blog post published Friday that 64 defense and civilian organizations used the GSA-DoD Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition contract vehicle during FY 2014.

She said military services accounted for 90 percent of the total FCSA orders and civilian agencies accounted for 10 percent.

Overall, the U.S. government spent more than $530 million on satcom contracts last fiscal year, Davie added.

She noted industry has delivered almost 1,200 commercial satellite technology and services to the government since GSA and DoD launched their joint procurement initiative in 2011.

GSA estimates the government saved $229 million last fiscal year through FCSA program utilization.
