General Services Administration Issues Cybersecurity RFI

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) issued a request for information (RFI) calling for stakeholders' input to make our the federal government's cybersecurity more resilient.

The GSA is looking for recommendations on standardizing cybersecurity contract elements and procurement requirements.  Stakeholder input will contribute to the final recommendations report to be issued in the early summer.

"Collaboration and cooperation allows government to deliver critical services to our federal partners and most importantly, the American people," said GSA Acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini. "The RFI is an important first step to a public private partnership that will help secure our nation's infrastructure. Developing these cybersecurity procurement recommendations is a priority for GSA and the interagency working group."
