Integrated Award Environment (IAE)

The Integrated Award Environment (IAE) 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:
    • Grants;
    • Loans;
    • Contracts; and
    • Intergovernmental transactions.

Here you will learn about how GSA manages its current suite of federal award systems and its flight path to migrate key features of those systems into one, streamlined environment.
