Join GSA @ Camp Acquisition Gateway


Federal acquisition community – you are invited to join GSA at summer camp! As part of GSA’s ongoing effort to increase awareness and educate the acquisition community on digital tools and resources available on the Acquisition Gateway, the agency is hosting a virtual summer camp called Camp Acquisition Gateway.

Camp Acquisition Gateway is a two-week series of demonstrations and webinars for the federal acquisition community to demonstrate how to navigate and use resources within the Acquisition Gateway. The demonstrations will walk federal acquisition professionals through key features including the CALC Tool, Prices Paid Portal, and the Project Center, and deep dives of the Information Technology Hardware, Professional Services, and Human Capital category hallways.

The daily Camp Acquisition Gateway virtual webinars start July 20, and run through August 2. Continuous Learning Points (CLPs) will be made available for each event following registration. Check out the event catalog for the complete schedule and to register. (Be sure to expand the number of events per page to 10 to see them all.)

The Acquisition Gateway helps the federal acquisition workforce from all agencies act as one acquisition community. Inside the Gateway, users can find unbiased comparisons of government-wide acquisition solutions, connect with other acquisition professionals, and explore product and service category “hallways.” The hallways feature resources and tools to help acquisition pros achieve successful outcomes at each step of the acquisition lifecycle.

Sharing these resources with the federal community via the Acquisition Gateway is one of the goals of category management. It makes information accessible in a single online location and allows agencies to provide valuable feedback on important and relevant policies and issues.
