Laura Stanton, deputy assistant commissioner for category management at GSA, provides an update on their e-commerce initiatives, and how their “whole-of-government” approach will help agency customers.

The General Services Administration is well into their e-Commerce program, and soon the first portal will open for agencies. Laura Stanton, deputy assistant commissioner for category management at GSA, says that the initial site will be barebones, with significant improvements on the horizon.


“There’ll be a website ran by GSA that says ‘Welcome to the commercial platforms initiative. Here are the key guidelines.’ and really make that easy for the user to navigate through it. They’re going to see the portals that have been selected as part of the acquisition, and then they will be able to make a selection of which ones they want to go to,” Stanton said. “At this time, it is going to be a pretty simple front page. When we talked to the agencies, really what they wanted to see is, let’s get this up and running, let us start buying through it, and adding a better user experience over time. That’s part of the iterative and scaleable approach.  We figured for the proof of concept, we just wanted to get it out there.”
