OGP and FAS Pave the Way for Green Purchasing

OGP's Office of Acquisition Policy now offers an online course titled Green Purchasing for the Federal Acquisition Work Force through its Center for Acquisition Excellence. The Federal Acquisition Service's Office of Acquisition Management was instrumental in developing the course content based on its work in sustainable acquisitions. The course provides an introduction to the federal green purchasing program, assists learners with identifying the breadth and scope of what constitutes green products, and discusses factors that shape federal green purchasing initiatives. All GSA employees are encouraged to learn more about this topic. Click here to access the Center for Acquisition Excellence login page and to enroll.
