The U.S. Digital Service has added a new online portal to the General Services Administration’s Acquisition Gateway website that aims to provide government agencies information on how to procure digital services, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth announced the launch of the TechFAR Hub during her keynote speech at the National Contract Management Association’s conference Sunday in Orlando, Florida, Tom Temin writes.

The online portal will serve as a “central location for digital services acquisition… advice to contracting people,” said Roth, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2016.

She also announced that GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service plans to introduce updates to Schedule 70 contract vehicle for information technology products and services, Temin reports.

These include the plan to roll out a new special item number for cybersecurity offerings on Sept. 30 as well as the launch of the Fast Lane program that aims to streamline the admission process for technology firms into Schedule 70, according to the report.
