Workstation/End User Device Environment and Trends 11-29-2021


A Workstation/End User Device Environment and Trends paper was developed to provide U.S. Federal government agencies with insight into the end-user computing environment and anticipated trends over the next decade. Development of this white paper began in 2020 by the Core Workstation Category Team (WCT), consisting of principals from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Institute of Health (NIH), General Services Administration (GSA), and the Department of Defense/Army.

This paper informs Federal agencies about the Government-wide Strategic Solutions (GSS) for Desktops and Laptops initiative for which technical standards that define end-user computing solutions have been developed and refreshed annually over the past seven years. The trends and assessments highlighted in this paper will enable agencies to shape their specific workstation requirements, price negotiations, terms and conditions, and other acquisition considerations. The overall intent is that these insights will guide Federal agencies on hardware technology acquisitions in alignment with the U.S. Federal Government Category Management IT Hardware Plan.
