New Acquisition Tool Allows Agencies to Comparison Shop
Contractors and interested members of the public may now use the online Acquisition Gateway to view a slice of agency procurement data, the General Services Administration announced.
The new tool advances the Obama Administration’s push, launched in December 2014, to remove procurement duplication across government through category management.
Agencies are encouraged to “act as one” and use the Acquisition Gateway to find side-by-side comparisons of different agency solutions for common procurement challenges such as cloud computing and logistics. The idea is to let agency purchasers connect with like-minded professionals and explore the 10 “hallways” of products and services.
