Governmentwide Initiatives

Billing and Accounts Receivable (BAAR) Project
GSA is modernizing its core financial management system through the Billing and Accounts Receivable (BAAR) Project. Central to the BAAR Project is the three-phased release of the Vendor and Customer Self Service (VCSS) website. Once it is fully deployed, VCSS will provide GSA customers with online access to their bills, statements and billing data, and paper bills and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) files will be phased out.

Under GSA’s Cooperative Purchasing Program, state and local governments – including public schools and institutions of higher education – can purchase safety and security-related products and services under the same terms and conditions as federal agencies.
