    Recently we posted a poll on Interact asking if the new GSA social media was working.  Some said yes and some said no.  Tell us what works and what doesn't so that we can improve our methods of reaching out to you - the customer.

    So - you all know that FAR 8.002 gives the ranking of priority for acquiring supplies within the government.  Number 2 on that list?  Excess inventory from other agencies!!  Can you get any greener than re-using property that other agencies no longer have a use for?  And now, GSA Property Management has even launched a 'Carbon Footprint Tool'  that provides you with a measure of how you have helped the environment.  It's included in GSAXcess®, GSA AuctionsSM, Computers for Learning [CFL], Energy Asset Disposal System [EADS] and the Agency Asset Management S

    Recently, many users have voiced concerns around the significant number of emails they receive from interact.gsa.gov. We at Interact have heard your pleas and have taken action to remedy this issue. The problem When first launched, the email notification system in Interact was set to immediately notify users of any changes to postings and content. With so much activity occurring on Interact, it’s not hard to imagine that the quantity and frequency of emails has become overwhelming.

    In using the Multiple Award Schedules Program (Schedules), both GSA and the Department of Defense (DoD) continue to be strong advocates of small business.  To promote the maximum use of small businesses, GSA strongly encourages agencies to leverage Schedules in identifying small business contractors and to consider at least one small business, veteran-owned small business, service disabled veteran-owned small business, HUBZone small business, women-owned small business, or small disadvantaged business when placing an order.

    OSBU is in the process of developing a Fan Page on Facebook.  Why?  Because we want to be where small businesses access their information.  We are expanding where you can get the information you seek.  Whether it is training events, procurement opportunities, GSA updates or regional news - we want to meet you where you go for answers.  We have also added Twitter to Facebook and what we post to Facebook will go on Twitter and of course it will all come here to interact thorugh our RSS Feeds.  We are also updating our website which is scheduled to go live by EXPO next week as well as an updat
