In conjunction with the GSS working group, NITAAC recently announced the availability of Version 4.0 specifications for the Government-Wide Strategic Solutions (GSS) program. The GSS Version 4.0 Portal offers Standard Laptop, Desktop and Tablet configurations, as well as Apple products. NITAAC GSS offers a wide array of quality IT products for Government agencies.
The Federal Government spends over $50 billion a year on hardware, software, telecommunications, IT security, and IT professional services through tens of thousands of contracts and delivery orders. The Category Management Leadership Council (CMLC) has taken steps to improve these acquisitions and the management of common IT goods and services to drive greater performance, efficiencies and savings through GSS, starting with laptops and desktops, but eventually encompassing other areas, like Cloud services and Cybersecurity.
NITAAC has served as one of three “Best in Class” sources for purchasing laptops and desktops for civilian agencies since October 16, 2015. NITAAC’s Ordering Guides make it easy to purchase product offerings under the CIO-CS and the NITAAC GSS program.
