Reports: GSA to Make Federal Acquisition Gateway Site Public

GSAThe General Services Administration could open its government Acquisition Gateway online portal to companies and the general public beginning next week, Fedscoop reported Thursday.

Billy Mitchell writes GSA launched the site in October 2014 for agency procurement employees to access information about a wide range of goods and services by category as well as to share buying strategies and resources.

The agency will make publicly available the platform for only a short period of time, Mitchell reports.

Laura Stanton, acting director of strategy management at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said the Acquisition Gateway has attracted more than 5,000 government users over a 15-month period.

Office of Federal Procurement Policy Administrator Anne Rung told reporters during a conference call that she expects the number of gateway users to double by the end of this year, FCW reports.

Rung added the GSA will appoint 10 managers to oversee each key specialized category on the site.
