The General Services Administration has announced a delay in the acquisition process for the e-marketplace platform as GSA works to meet the demand of federal agencies for information technology hardware and related services in support of telework initiatives during the coronavirus pandemic.

“The contracting team for the Commercial Platforms proof of concept has also had to shift their focus to COVID-19 response efforts,” Laura Stanton, deputy assistant commissioner for category management at GSA, said in a statement published Wednesday. “A delay is anticipated in the contract award to e-marketplace platform providers for the proof of concept.”

Stanton said her organization’s goal is to award the contract “in the coming months.”
