Common Acquisition Platform

The Common Acquisition Platform (CAP) program is leading or contributing to a number of efforts aimed at transforming acquisition processes and systems. These efforts include a set of digital and shared services that will drive the federal government in the direction of acting as one acquisition community equipped with more informative, innovative and cost-effective acquisition systems, tools and shared services.

Integrated Award Environment

The Integrated Award Environment is a Presidential E-Government initiative managed by GSA. We use innovative processes and technologies to improve systems and operations for those who award, administer, or receive federal financial assistance (i.e.; grants, loans), contracts, and intergovernmental transactions.

Our vision is to continue to evolve and integrate the existing shared portfolio of ten electronic systems used for awarding and administering federal financial assistance and contracts.
