GSA Develops AI Platform to Evaluate Contract Solicitation Regulation Compliance

The General Services Administration plans to use artificial intelligence technology to review the compliance of contract solicitations with a certain federal rule, FCW reported Tuesday.

Marina Fox, dot-gov domain services manager at the GSA, said that the agency's Solicitation Review Tool would check if a contract's internet-based content is accessible to people with disabilities as required under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

She said at the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center's data analytics summit that the agency is developing the tool to address occurrences of lawsuits against non-compliant sources.

The service manager also noted that human-conducted compliance reviews are too costly and time-intensive.

The agency has been working to complete the SRT for a year and a half, and intends to launch the tool in fall of next year.
