Governmentwide Initiatives

Acquisition Gateway
The Acquisition Gateway, built by GSA, helps federal government buyers from all agencies act as one acquisition community. Our goal is to help make government acquisition great.
Billing and Accounts Receivable (BAAR) Project
GSA is modernizing its core financial management system through the Billing and Accounts Receivable (BAAR) Project. Central to the BAAR Project is the three-phased release of the Vendor and Customer Self Service (VCSS) website. Once it is fully deployed, VCSS will provide GSA customers with online access to their bills, statements and billing data, and paper bills and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) files will be phased out.
Category Management
Category management is an approach the federal government is applying to buy smarter and more like a single enterprise.
Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI)
We help federal agencies optimize and modernize data centers and IT infrastructure in compliance with the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI), and the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy (“Cloud Smart”) through the Data Center and Cloud Optimization Initiative (DCCOI) Program Management Office.
Digital Strategy
We are building a 21st century government that procures and manages devices, applications, and data in smart, secure, and affordable ways, enabling the American people to access high-quality digital government information and services anywhere, anytime, on any device.
DotGov Domain Services
Bona fide government services should be easy to identify on the internet. GSA oversees the .gov top-level domain (TLD) for the U.S. Government, supporting federal, state, local, and Native Sovereign Nation (NSN) agencies with critical infrastructure to ensure that .gov domains resolve globally, and are easy to obtain, and we work to make the .gov zone a trusted, secure space.
Emergency Response
We provide resources to help you be prepared in an emergency, including information on hotlines; getting supplies, equipment, and services; evacuation; travel; and facilities management.
Emerging Citizen Technology
GSA launched a program to find practical use cases in government for modern technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain.
We lead efforts to launch, maintain, and manage the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program by providing technical expertise, coordinating efforts across government, and staffing the FedRAMP program management office.
Greening Federal Buildings
GSA, the government’s largest civilian landlord, leads the way in green building design, construction, retrofit and sustainable operations and maintenance. Through its commitment to sustainable design, GSA pledges to serve as a forward thinking and responsible steward of our nation’s economic and natural resources.
Identity, Credentials, and Access Management
We help contractors and federal employees navigate the security clearance and credentialing process.
Mobile Government
Mobile technology is changing the way people find and use information and services. Find out how government interacts with the public in this anytime, anywhere world.
Online Billing
We can help simplify your billing process with online tools for government transactions, including real estate, telecommunications, vehicles, global supply, information technology services, and reimbursable work authorizations.
Open Data
GSA makes available a wide range of data sets to the general public as part of the federal initiative for Open Government and Open Data.
Open Government
We are working hard to become more transparent, participatory, and collaborative in our business, bringing Americans into their government as never before.
Plain Language
We are committed to writing all of our new and substantially revised documents and public Web content in plain language.
Presidential Transition
To promote the orderly transfer of power between presidential administrations, we provide the president-elect and the vice president-elect with the services and facilities to assume their official duties.
Safer Schools, Safer Communities
Under GSA’s Cooperative Purchasing Program, state and local governments – including public schools and institutions of higher education – can purchase safety and security-related products and services under the same terms and conditions as federal agencies. By using GSA's pre-negotiated Schedule contracts, local officials can save time and reduce costs.
School Support
We offer educational institutions the opportunity to use several purchasing and donation programs to support their everyday and disaster recovery needs. These include: Cooperative Purchasing, Disaster Purchasing, Computers for Learning, Personal Surplus Property Donation Program and the Safer Schools initiative.
We help federal agencies meet environmental goals by offering sustainable solutions. We act as a proving ground for innovations in buying renewable power and managing energy efficient buildings, and we provide leadership with our initiatives that are catalysts for change.
Technology Modernization Fund
The TMF provides support to agencies applying to receive funds from the TMF to support their modernization efforts at every stage of the proposal development process, from initial concept development to final award.
We help federal employees telework from a variety of locations, including their homes; telework centers in the Washington, DC metro area; and other alternative workplaces.
Total Workplace
We help federal agencies seeking to reduce their real estate costs and increase their workplace efficiencies with this national initiative strategically integrating space, people, and technology solutions customized to different workplace needs.
Travel Resources
We connect government employees with the policies, training, and support to travel efficiently and according to government regulations.
