GSA FAS Leader Julie Dunne: MAS Contract Vehicle Consolidation Boosted Sales
Julie Dunne

Julie Dunne, outgoing commissioner of the General Services Administration's (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service (FAS), said her team's consolidation of the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract vehicle boosted sales from $32 billion to $36 billion between 2019 and 2020. 

Dunne said her successor must sustain the consolidation's results and complementary catalog management work, FCW reported Tuesday. GSA will continue the consolidation with the release of a new common catalog platform through which the agency and contractors would manage offerings in a common user interface.

The FAS leader also mentioned her team's efforts to integrate supply chain risk management into MAS procurements.

"We're trying to initiate processes and understand what the threats are and how to deliver the best acquisition solution," Dunne told FCW.
