Integrated Award Environment (IAE)
The Integrated Award Environment (IAE) is a government-wide initiative administered by GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service (FAS). We manage the suite of systems that are a part of the federal awards lifecycle.
The IAE program is a part of the Office of Systems Management, operated by FAS, which manages, integrates, and unifies the federal award process for the United States government acquisition workforce, business partners, and assistance communities. The IAE supports GSA's objectives by modernizing the award experience through innovative and user-friendly systems.
IAE Delivers the Framework for Conducting Government Business
The IAE facilitates the awards processes in multiple online systems, including the System for Award Management (SAM), that each plays a role in the awards lifecycle. Those systems are used for registering to do business with the federal government, listing contract opportunities, performance reporting, contract data, and more.
The IAE delivers trusted, essential places to seamlessly connect to the acquisition and assistance communities.
- We offer a stable framework for conducting government business with the private sector, assistance communities, and other government entities.
- We ensure that the systems that support the awards lifecycle work for users.
- We reduce burden by integrating and centralizing award administration and oversight.
