Commercial Platforms

Meet the E-Marketplaces. Go now button.

The Commercial Platforms proof of concept provides GSA SmartPay® Purchase Card (GPC) holders with access to multiple e-marketplace platforms, for purchases of commercial products within the micro-purchase threshold (MPT). The proof of concept enables GSA to demonstrate the viability of a government-wide approach to online buying so we can smartly scale the program in the future with the goal of:

  • Modernizing the commercial product buying experience.
  • Streamlining commercial item purchasing to help agencies focus on mission-oriented acquisition.
  • Analyzing commercial item spend data to enable better buying decisions.

The proof of concept is open to a limited audience of GPC holders from participating agencies. Is your agency participating? Find out now.
