Annual Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) scorecard results demonstrate GSA’s leadership for information technology modernization.
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. General Services Administration earned a top grade (A+) on the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) scorecard. GSA was the only agency to receive an “A+”.
“GSA strives to be a leader in providing new and innovative IT solutions for its internal customers and federal partners,” said GSA Chief Information Officer Dave Shive. “As business demands increase and technologies change, GSA must deliver IT solutions to customers and stakeholders in smart and effective ways.”
This year, GSA made overall gains in the cybersecurity category and for the transition to the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) communications services contract.
“We must continually assess and evaluate our internal operations to find opportunities that consistently yield the best mission enablement, security-enhancing, citizen-benefiting and cost saving results,” Shive added.
The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), passed by Congress in 2014, represented the first major overhaul of Federal information technology.
GSA IT supports GSA's mission by providing innovative, collaborative and cost-effective IT solutions while delivering excellent customer service to federal partners and agencies.
