GSA Lists Federal Acquisition Service Achievements in Fiscal 2016

The General Services Administration has listed major achievements of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service in fiscal year 2016 as part of a year-end review.

GSA said Friday FAS’ 2016 highlights include the creation of new IT Schedule 70 special item numbers for Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services.

GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth said the new SINs will work to provide access to pre-vetted support services that will help agencies test high-priority information technology systems; address vulnerabilities and mitigate threats.

FAS also published the Transactional Data Rule that requires federal contractors to provide transactional data on purchases made through GSA contract vehicles in an effort to inform contracting officers’ purchasing decisions.

In FY 2016, GSA also reached 10,000 users on its Acquisition Gateway that is designed to provide an acquisition community for federal government buyers.
