FTS takes on procurement woes

The General Services Administration has put together a four-step plan to improve procurement oversight and training at regional Federal Technology Service offices. The strategy follows the GSA inspector general's findings of new examples of misuse of the IT Fund and the 8(a) contracting program in FTS regions 4 and 6.

The IG originally reported problems in region 10, which forced GSA to close down its Bremerton, Wash., field office. The office had used the IT Fund to award contracts for non-IT services.

Region 4 covers Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Region 6 covers Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
