RFI Responses due Dec 21 / Industry Day Transcript Available


I want to thank everyone for their participation in last week’s Federal Marketplace Industry Day, and the discussion and feedback regarding the commercial platforms initiative. It was great to see so many in-person attendees as well as nearly 1,000 attendees online. It was a turnout that reflects your ongoing commitment to providing feedback throughout the phases of this effort.


As a friendly reminder, GSA and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) invite your comments on the Commercial e-Commerce Portals or “Commercial Platforms” program documents. GSA is looking for written responses providing general feedback to the documents as well as insights to specific questions we’ve posed -- please submit your input by December 21, 2018, to Section846@gsa.gov. For more information, please see this Interact post.


For those of you that would like to review the transcript from the industry day, it is attached below. (Please note that the commercial platforms portion starts on p.124.)


We appreciate your continued partnership and look forward to receiving your feedback.




Laura Stanton

Deputy Assistant Commissioner, FAS ITC Category Management
