To Our Valued Technology Customers:

I’m Mary Davie, Assistant Commissioner of the General Service Administration’s (GSA) Office of Integrated Technology Services (ITS). I am excited to introduce you to the GSA Information Technology (IT) Schedule 70 Contract Guide highlighting the largest and most widely used IT procurement vehicle in the federal government. This guide features IT Schedule 70 program capabilities and benefits, demonstrating the ways in which GSA offers integrated technology products, services, and solutions. This guide also addresses federal, state, and local governments’ greatest mission challenges.

IT Schedule 70, part of GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) program, offers access to commercial information technology products and services from over 5,000 certified vendors. The program’s value can be found in its ease-of-use, fair and reasonable pricing, free training, and access to an array of world-class industry partners, many of which are small businesses.

Agencies face increasingly complex communications and computing challenges. To achieve their missions, agencies require equally complex solutions such as cloud IT and data center services, sustainability and green IT, cybersecurity, and commercial satellite communications.

GSA’s recently awarded Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud offering provides an example of how we use IT Schedule 70 as a platform for creating integrated solutions. The IaaS blanket purchase agreement (BPA) packages IT Schedule 70 products and services into distinct lots featuring cloud storage, virtual machines, and web hosting. Through this offering, as well as GSA’s upcoming Email-as-a-Service contract, agencies can meet the Office of Management and Budget’s cloud and data center consolidation mandates, reduce their environmental footprint, save taxpayer money, and serve the American people better. IT Schedule 70 brings the latest technology to agencies and allows GSA to be more innovative and responsive to the needs of the government agencies we serve.

Communication with our customers and industry partners is critical to our continuing success. As a result, I am happy to note that we have launched an improved helpline to ensure that people can get their questions addressed quickly and efficiently. We are also working to increase collaboration and improve our customer service offerings through training opportunities, industry forums, and enhanced regional representation. The recent enhancements to GSAAdvantage! increase our customers’ ability to perform market research on our suite of products and services and make informed buying decisions.

The Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) and the IT Schedule 70 program remain committed to making it easier for agencies to meet their missions and conduct the business of the federal government through quick and cost-effective fulfillment of IT needs. Thank you for choosing to work with GSA.

Sincerely,

Mary Davie
