      This is a frequently asked question we cover to some extent in our standard Using GSA Schedules for Professional Services seminar but our friends at the Department of Interior recently pointed out during one of our seminar sessions that there exists no discussion on this topic online (or at least nothing they could find).  Well, I can’t find it either!

    For GSA staff and others -- you can now take the Green Purchasing Training course through the On-Line University.  It is essentially the same course posted on the Center for Acquisition Excellence web site.  Posting it on OLU makes it easier for us to track who has taken the training. For the future, my division is considering developing a refresher course, a course on how to green an acquisition, and courses on sustainability and greenhouse gases.  What would be useful to you?

    Any chance contractors could sit in or audit these training sessions?

    Dana, any possibility that training will be developed for procuring services in a sustainable or "green" manner?  
    Just got this email but the date for the training and the comments say 2011.

    The Enterprise GWAC Division office shared a released slide deck which was distributed to the Alliant Shared Interest Group on July 1, 2013.  This was a result of collaboration with regional AAS directors. The objective is to help further support business development by providing a region-wide reference that could be used to increase opportunities for an effective and streamline communication process.
