GSA's Open Government Initiatives

This is GSA

GSA is committed to delivering on its mission to provide the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to government and the American people. Every day, we help agencies buy smarter, reduce their real estate footprint, and create a better, faster government. "This is GSA" is a snapshot of how we make a difference in communities across the country.

Open Government Plan, v. 3.0

GSA’s third Open Government Plan builds bridges between the government and the public, providing tools that smooth communication pathways between federal agencies that face challenges that need solutions and the creativity of the public sector and making it easier for citizens and the business community to participate in government programs.

We recognize that our Open Government Plan is a living document and will evolve. As we continue towards increased transparency, participation, collaboration, and innovation, we will include updates of how these open government principles are integrated in our strategic efforts and mission operations. Details about achievements in these areas can be found on our website, and We invite the public to contribute ideas on ways GSA can become more accountable and accessible. The feedback we receive from the public today will help to shape a more open GSA for tomorrow. Please email us at to let us know:

  • What data or information do you want GSA to make available to the public?
  • What additional open government activities would you like to see GSA involved in?
  • What would you like us to include in our updated open government plan?
