Common Acquisition Platform (CAP)

The Common Acquisition Platform (CAP) program is leading or contributing to a number of efforts to transform GSA's acquisition processes and systems.

CAP initiatives have the goal of providing the acquisition professional with a more integrated, comprehensive suite of knowledge and data as well as a better toolset of systems to support enhanced execution.

Highlighted CAP projects:

FAS Cloud Services (FCS)

FAS Cloud Services (FCS) are a collection of cloud-centric tools and services that help FAS and GSA-IT improve IT project outcomes, while reducing costs and support requirements. FCS serves IT organizations at their current maturity level. The services target modernization and new IT projects where the maximum savings can be achieved. It also supports migration of legacy applications from on-premise data centers. FCS is already hosting over a dozen FAS applications, including, the Acquisition Gateway, and the Transactional Data Repository.

eBuy Open

As part of the ongoing efforts related to category management, GSA has developed a new query tool to provide improved access to eBuy RFQs. The new tool – eBuy Open – is currently available through the Acquisition Gateway.

eBuy Open is an interactive application that displays open, closed, and cancelled eBuy RFQ information (order level information is not available). The tool also provides filtering and searching options that enable users to quickly drill down by agency, status, GSA Schedule, SIN, and date. Users can also search by description or title.
