GSA Announces Inaugural Acquisition Policy Advisory Committee Members

Earlier this year, GSA announced its intent to launch the Committee and received over 100 nominations in response.

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announced at the GSA Acquisition Policy Federal Advisory Committee’s (GAP FAC) first public meeting the 28 inaugural members selected from a candidate field of more than 100 highly experienced and knowledgeable experts to serve as its advisors. The GAP FAC will advise the GSA Administrator on emerging acquisition issues, challenges, and opportunities to support its role as America’s buyer.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Federal Advisory Committee Act than by launching this advisory committee, which will help guide acquisition policy of the world’s largest buyer, the U.S. government,” said GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan in her welcoming remarks to the new members. “GSA plays a leading role, through our Federal Acquisition Service. It’s our responsibility to bring together top experts from around the country with practical, on-the-ground experience to help generate ideas for how we can improve the way government buys things and leverage the government’s buying power to advance important policy goals.”

The Committee charged itself with an initial focus on driving regulatory, policy, and process changes to embed climate and sustainability considerations in federal acquisition. This includes recommending steps GSA can take to support its workforce and industry partners in ensuring climate and sustainability issues are fully considered in the acquisition process.

“We are grateful that these highly experienced and knowledgeable experts have agreed to volunteer their time and talents to help us,” said Office of Government-wide Policy Associate Administrator Krystal J. Brumfield, who also serves as the agency’s Chief Acquisition Officer. “I look forward to their recommendations for acquisition policy that advance GSA’s mission as America’s buyer, an acquisition workforce that is ready for the future, and a domestic supplier base incentivized to supply innovative offerings to the federal government.”
