The General Services Administration launched May 30 the new governmentwide Mobile Device Management Program that aims to streamline the procurement process for agencies to access mobile solutions.
Under the program, agencies will be able to access mobile device management, mobile application management and mobile lifecycle management solutions through existing governmentwide contracts and purchase agreements.
“With the near-universal adoption of smart mobile technology across the federal workforce, GSA’s role as America’s buyer for the mobile work environment is more important than ever,” said GSA Acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini. “GSA’s Managed Mobility program gives agencies the tools they need to buy once and buy well, saving taxpayer dollars and keeping pace with leading-edge mobile technologies.”
GSA said the Managed Mobility Program will complement the recently launched Wireless Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative that lowers prices and transforms how government buys wireless service plans.
GSA’s Managed Mobility creates and maintains a list of potential sources of supply that meet the greatest number of government requirements.
Agencies can use the Managed Mobility program’s central repository, information and staff to help buy the solutions that best meets their requirements.
“GSA has done the initial work to define requirements, identify potential sources of supply, and secure some baseline pricing to help agencies budget for these purchases,” said Mary Davie, GSA’s assistant commissioner in the Office of Integrated Technology Services.
