1 min read

The General Services Administration has taken down its online store for agencies to acquire cloud computing services after three years in action, FierceGovernment IT reports.

Citing a statement from GSA, David Perera writes services formerly listed as up for sale on Apps.gov are now available through the agency’s schedule online purchasing websites and on howto.gov for free.

Fiscal year 2011 sales through the site totaled $5 million and the site averaged around 3,800 hits per month, Perera writes.

According to Information Week, many agencies used the site to shop for software-as-a-service and other cloud services, then issued requests for proposals that factored in their individual requirements.

They also added cloud services to existing contracts, the site reported.
