The General Services Administration has processed more than 59,000 transactions under its Second Generation Information Technology blanket purchase agreements via the GSA Advantage! online shopping platform, according to GSA official Laura Stanton.

Forty-three agencies have used the governmentwide 2GIT vehicle and over $127 million in sales, or 74 percent of the total revenue, going to small businesses, the assistant commissioner for the Federal Acquisition Service’s Office of IT Category wrote in a blog post published Tuesday.

Stanton noted the program supports a diverse pool of more than 50 small-business partners. Her office has offered assistance and training sessions to over 800 customers worldwide, including Pacific and European Air Force units.

The training covers various aspects of the 2GIT acquisition program, best practices on market research and the procurement process through the GSA eCommerce portal, Stanton added.

She added the agency applies supply chain risk management principles to the BPA and has worked with industry partners to remove approximately 75,000 unauthorized offerings from the GSA Advantage! ordering system.
