GSA Preserves the Past, Defines the Future
Founded in 1949, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) serves as a centralized procurement and property management agency for the federal government. GSA manages more than one-fourth of the government’s total procurement dollars and influences the management of $500 billion in federal assets, including 8,300 government-owned or leased buildings and 170,000 vehicles. GSA acts as a steward of more than 420 historic properties, and as manager of USA.gov, the official portal to federal government information and services. GSA’s mission to provide superior workplaces, expert technology solutions, acquisition services, purchasing and e-travel solutions, and management policies, at best value, allows federal agencies to focus on their core missions.
Did you know? The GSA is the federal government’s business arm with combined revenue of billions per year. If it were a private company, it would rank among the Fortune 100.
