The General Services Administration (GSA) held a User Kickoff Meeting on June 27, 2013, to discuss use of the newly awarded Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) contract vehicles and published the GSA FSSI User Guide on February 14, 2014.  Treasury continues to work closely with GSA to determine the most effective and cost efficient strategy for Department-wide use of the FSSI awards and anticipates transition to the FSSI contracts in early FY 2015, consistent with expiration of current contract performance periods. On final determination of our transition strategy, Office of the Procurement Executive (OPE) will issue related formal procurement policy; it remains the Department’s intent to use the GSA FSSI contract vehicles provided they offer the anticipated value.  OPE has collaborated with Bureau Chief Procurement Officers (BCPOs) and with the Office of the Chief Information Officer to facilitate the appropriate internal analysis and planning.  In the interim, Treasury has continued its focus on leveraging existing internal contracts for wireless services to provide the greatest value for current services.
