The Federal government’s diverse missions require a cornucopia of goods and services.  From benches at National Parks to paint for Federal offices, GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service provides contracts and expertise to bring the best value possible to government purchasing. 

The last 12 months under new leadership have brought modernization and innovation into the forefront, and Alan Thomas, Commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, has led the charge. 

Join us as Commissioner Thomas, along with Assistant Commissioner Kay Ely, and Associate CIO Sagar Samant, provide updates on the Federal Acquisition Service's vision and plans for internal systems modernization, as well as GSA’s role in IT modernization. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the upcoming CAMEO recompete, Industry Day, and more.

AFFIRM is a Project Management Institute Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.). PDUs are available for this program.

This event is on the record.
