GSA Receives Technology Modernization Funds to Support Pay Management System

The General Services Administration has taken $20.7M from the government's Technology Modernization Fund for the development of a new cloud-based pay and personnel management system, Federal Times reported Tuesday.

The funds will support the GSA NewPay project that was meant to be a 10-year, $2.5B contract the agency awarded to teams led by Carahsoft and Grant Thornton. The additional funds are intended to speed up the project's progress.

The TMF currently has $11M remaining after the recent obligation.
