Julie Dunne Announces GSA’s Federal Marketplace Strategy Spring 2020 Release

Julie Dunne, commissioner of the General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service, said GSA provided an overview of the agency’s information technology modernization efforts and COVID-19 response initiatives through its Federal Marketplace Strategy Spring 2020 Release.

Dunne wrote in a blog post published Tuesday the release offers information on project improvements GSA has implemented, including the development of buying guides and tools to help agencies procure the products and services they need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Those procurement guides cover telework and IT, cleaning products and services and building screening services areas.

Dunne also mentioned the development of new acquisition policies to offer flexibilities in support of suppliers and customers, the revamped design of GSA Advantage! and the move of the Federal Procurement Data System contract data reporting functionality to the System for Award Management’s beta website as part of the spring 2020 release.

“The improvements implemented during this transition provide a modern and robust reporting experience that make it easier to get data and better manage federal spend,” Dunne said of the FPDS report functionality's move to the SAM beta website.
