GSA Strengthens Supply Chain with New Monitoring Process to Bolster Federal Marketplace
The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced progress in its ongoing efforts to strengthen the federal supply chain and reduce supply chain risk by using its Verified Products Portal (VPP) to monitor and remove products from unauthorized suppliers.
