Washington, DC – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced Time magazine has named USA.gov, the official web portal for the U.S. government, as one of “25 Sites We Can’t Live Without.”
“We are very proud of what USA.gov has done, and we’re excited Time has recognized it among its "Can’t Live Without" list for this year,” said GSA Administrator Lurita Doan. “GSA is committed to excellence and USA.gov exemplifies that commitment.”
USA.gov joins the notable ranks of other websites featured on the “Can’t Live Without” list such as Amazon, eBay, Google, WebMD and Yahoo.com.
Managed by GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Communications, USA.gov is the official web portal for the U.S. government, providing links to every branch, agency and organization involved in federal business. USA.gov provides links to reports, guides, reference material and other resources and services which serve visitors to get things done online.
Founded in 1949, GSA serves as a centralized procurement and property management agency for the federal government. GSA manages more than one-fourth of the government’s total procurement dollars and influences the management of $500 billion in federal assets, including 8,600 government-owned or leased buildings and 205,000 vehicles. GSA helps preserve our past and define our future, as a steward of more than 420 historic properties, and as manager of USA.gov, the official portal to federal government information and services. GSA’s mission to provide superior workplaces, expert technology solutions, acquisition services, purchasing and e-travel solutions and management policies, at best value, allows federal agencies to focus on their core missions.
