Emily Murphy Highlights GSA Data-Driven Progress

Emily Murphy

Emily Murphy, administrator of the General Services Administration and a 2019 Wash100 Award winner, presented about the agency’s use of data to inform decision making during the 2019 ACT-IAC ImagineNation ELC conference, FCW reported Wednesday.

GSA’s acquisition dashboard has so far helped GSA quantify acquisition progress including the Federal Acquisition Service’ record-setting performance this year, she noted.

Murphy said GSA’s procurement vehicles have generated $68 billion in total sales, exhibiting a 23 percent rise from 2017. The administrator also said the agency may spend up to $150 million on FAS’ system modernization due to increasing earnings. The agency has also been using data analytics to support decision making.
