Mikey Dickerson, Anne Rung: OFPP, USDS Partner to Create Digital Services Acquisition Platform

digital governmentThe Office of Federal Procurement Policy and the U.S. Digital Service have collaborated to develop a web-based platform designed to help agencies access practical tools and resources to facilitate digital services procurement activities.

Federal Chief Acquisition Officer Anne Rung and USDS Administrator Mikey Dickerson wrote in a blog post published Tuesday the TechFAR Hub works to help government acquisition professionals discover new ideas and share best practices as well as seek digital information technology support from experts.

“Our goal is to refine and shape future content and features around the needs of the acquisition workforce in order to enhance its ability to deliver greater value for each taxpayer dollar spent,” noted Rung and Dickerson.

They added TechFAR Hub builds on ongoing efforts across the federal government to update the process for management  and procurement of common IT goods and services.

Denise Turner Roth, administrator of the General Services Administration, said in July the platform is built to  serve as a “central location for digital services acquisition” on GSA’s Acquisition Gateway website.
