The General Services Administration is planning an industry day to discuss the agency's reorganization plans, GSA executives said yesterday.
Within the next few days, GSA expects to post the time and location of the industry day on the FedBizOpps Web site www.fedbizopps.gov
, said Donna Bennett, GSA's Federal Supply Services commissioner, and Barbara Shelton, acting commissioner for the agency's Federal Technology Service. The industry day likely will be held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, Bennett said.
'We very much need you to tell us what kinds of changes you need us to make to make your work easier'to make it easier for you to work with GSA,' Shelton said at a conference on federal IT spending presented by Input of Reston, Va.
To better coordinate the procurement of goods, services and technology, GSA wants to combine its FSS and FTS offices and funds. The agency anticipates completing an initial draft of its merger plan by May 31.
At the industry day, GSA also wants feedback from vendors on changing the FTS fee structure, which varies from place to place.
'We are looking at rationalizing the FTS fee structure, making it make sense for our customers and our industry partners,' Shelton said.
