Agencies get more time to list their software

The General Services Administration has extended to May 1 the deadline for agencies to submit inventories of the software they use. GSA will use the inventories to fine-tune its plans for the SmartBuy governmentwide software licensing program.

Tom Kireilis, GSA's SmartBuy program manager, this month said some agencies needed more time to figure out the types, cost and quantities of their software.

The Office of Management and Budget originally set April 15 as the deadline for lists of all 2003 software acquisitions.

GSA will analyze the inventories next month to establish short- and long-term priorities, Kireilis said. GSA expects to issue requests for information for the short-term priorities before the end of June.
