“The mission of GSA is to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to government and the American people.”
Delivering Better Value and Savings. By using the purchasing power of the federal government, they will drive down prices, deliver better value, and reduce costs to their customer agencies. As a result, these agencies can focus their resources and attention on their core missions. They will also step up their efforts to save agencies money by creating 10 new ways that the entire government can purchase resources smarter and more efficiently. In addition, they are looking to maximize the value of their real estate assets and reduce their federal footprint. At the same time, they are looking to help their partner agencies find the space and services they need to serve the American people.
Serving their Partners. GSA will ensure that doing business with themis as easy and reliable as possible by simplifying and streamlining their processes and systems. They are dedicated to providing an excellent customer experience for their partner agencies and vendors. GSA will create a culture of continuous improvement by always searching for better ways to meet their customers’ needs and expectations.
Expanding Opportunities for Small Businesses. Delivering the best value for government and the American people requires taking advantage of all resources. Central to that approach is expanding opportunities for small businesses throughout the country. GSA will share ideas and best practices across the organization and with their customer agencies. They are working with the small business community, including businesses owned by veteran, women, minority, and disadvantaged entrepreneurs, to strengthen partnerships and support the success of their vendors.
Making a More Sustainable Government. Going green saves green, and they are committed to a sustainable government that reduces energy and water use in federal buildings, responsibly disposes of electronic waste, and greens the federal fleet. GSA will also continue to work with businesses to make sustainable products and services readily available and affordable to their partner agencies. GSA has begun including life-cycle costs into their planning and decision making. They are also beginning the widespread implementation of innovative technologies and best practices from sources such as their own Green Proving Ground. Through their efforts, they can reduce their government’s environmental and fiscal footprints.
Leading with Innovation. GSA is a leader of innovation in public service. For example, GSA was the first government agency to move to the cloud and to offer a process to streamline security of cloud services for the entire federal government. They are promoting an innovative, flexible, open workplace that will shrink the federal footprint while also serving as a model for federal offices for the future. In the coming year, we will continue to develop innovative cost-saving solutions that will be shared across the government.
Building a Stronger GSA. They must provide their own employees with the same high-quality service and support that they provide their partner agencies. Within GSA they need to give their employees the very best training and resources available so that they can deliver their mission as efficiently as possible. They will emphasize collaboration and cooperation across their business lines and throughout the agency so that their customers are receiving the best service from GSA. They will guarantee that when they do something, they do it once and do it well.
