WASHINGTON – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) plans to add three online schedule solicitations next year, after successfully issuing its first electronic contract and contract modification, GSA announced today.
GSA expects to develop and post the new electronic schedule solicitations by Sept. 30, 2005.
Accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, GSA’s electronic tools make government more efficient and effective. They save time and money for government and industry, by eliminating the need for paper, faxes and delivery services. Equally important, they support GSA’s effort to help federal contracting officers and vendors comply with federal contract regulations, a key component of GSA’s “Get It Right” campaign.
GSA’s Digital Certificates ensure Internet security for vendors and federal contracting officers, as they exchange data on eOffer and eMod.
eOffer posts information technology solicitations and accepts vendor proposals, including documentation, electronically. eMod issues contract modifications to GSA Federal Supply Service Schedule contractors electronically. Secure electronic signatures complete the eOffer and eMod processes.
In September, GSA used eOffer to award a paperless contract to Dell Federal Systems LP of Round Rock, Texas, and used eMod to issue a paperless modification to IBM Corp. LP of Armonk, N.Y.
Information on eOffer and eMod is available by calling (866) 472-9114, by sending an email to eOffer@gsa.gov and by visiting GSA’s eTools Web page.
GSA is a centralized, federal procurement, property management and policy agency, created by Congress to improve government efficiency and help federal agencies better serve the public.

It also plays a key role in developing and implementing government-wide policies. GSA’s 13,000 associates provide services and solutions for the office operations of more than one million federal workers in more than 8,000 buildings the government owns and leases in 2,000 U.S. communities.
