The General Services Administration plans to establish a new committee to advise GSA on how to address the climate crisis and promote sustainability using acquisition authorities and tools.
The GSA Acquisition Policy Federal Advisory Committee will be composed of representatives from federal, local and state government agencies, academia and industry groups and will drive policy and regulatory changes to advance sustainability and climate considerations in federal acquisition process.
GAP FAC will operate in compliance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act’s provisions.
“We have a responsibility as the world’s largest buyer to solicit ideas from top experts in both the public and private sector about how we approach acquisition, particularly in regards to priorities like advancing sustainability and tackling climate change,” said GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan.
“I look forward to seeing how this committee can help uncover new strategies and approaches to help us buy cleaner,” Carnahan added.
GSA is calling for nominations to the committee and will accept submissions through May 23.
