GSA moves on new buying system

The General Services Administration will begin deploying a new back-office procurement management system by the end of January.

Christopher Wren, chief technology officer for GSA's Federal Technology Service, said GSA and contractor Unisys Corp. will finish testing the application, known as the 3rd Generation System, by early December, and then will begin user training a few weeks later.

The first 3GS users will be FTS employees in regions 3 and 8. Region 3 covers Delaware, Maryland, southern New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. Region 8 covers Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.

Eventually, all agencies that buy goods or services through FTS will use the system.
