IT Standards

The Chief Technology Officer (CTO) determines and maintains GSA’s IT Standards list; a comprehensive set of technologies approved for use within GSA. The Office of the CTO collaborates with IT Security, the 508 Compliance team, and various subject matter experts to determine that the technology will work safely and effectively in the GSA environment.

The IT Standards process can be applied within all agencies and we welcome questions and requests for discussions or demonstrations. For more information contact Cindy Smith in the CTO's office at or
