The Unified Shared Services Management (USSM) office is exploring industry capabilities to provide standardized software-as-a-service solutions across administrative services.
The General Services Administration issued a request for information to vendors on Jan. 4 seeking sources for interoperable, modular applications; feedback on using the Federal Integrated Business Framework as documentation for understanding governmentwide needs; and thoughts on public-private partnership funding models.
To evaluate demand and supply of services that reduce systems and costs, USSM is asking for descriptions of existing, upcoming and enhanceable capabilities that could create a suite of offerings to meet the needs of Office of Management and Budget memorandum M-16-11. These functional areas include financial management, human resources, acquisitions and information technology. Vendors are also requested to explain how they will approach FedRAMP authorization.
"This is an important step toward understanding how we can change the way government does business internally," USSM Executive Director Beth Angerman said. "Improving administrative services ultimately helps the government be better equipped to deliver its core mission and save the taxpayers money."
