GSA’s New Pilot Program Aims to Bolster eBuy Marketplace Transparency; Emily Murphy Quoted

The General Services Administration has initiated a new pilot program intended to get more firms to sell products and services on the agency's eBuy federal marketplace.

The one-year program would publicly disclose associated, post-award request-for-quote information on FedBizOpps in a move to increase eBuy's transparency, the GSA said Wednesday.

“Providing more transparency into how the federal government buys products and services will help contractors and our agency customers make more informed decisions when considering GSA contracts,” said Emily Murphy, GSA administrator.

GSA contracting officers will create test groups to provide data for analysis under the pilot program.

FedBizOpps users may enter “eBuyPilot” on the website's search box to navigate RFQ notices released for the pilot through October 9, 2019.
