Denise Turner Roth, head of the General Services Administration, has launched an effort to make it easier for small businesses to access data and tools related to the federal contracting process.

“We must ensure that our agency provides opportunities for suppliers across the board, most especially small, young and women-owned businesses,” Roth said Thursday during a keynote speech at a luncheon event held by the Sterling Women of Washington.

She noted that women-owned companies play a role in helping local economies grow and aims for the agency to serve as a catalyst for economic development efforts in the U.S.

GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules program generated more than $30 billion during the government’s 2014 fiscal year, according to Roth.
