Federal News Radio's Jason Miller's talks to Houston Taylor, Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Acquisition Management at the General Services Administration, about the agency's new contracting vehicle called Integrations.

According to GSA's website:

GSA's Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) is developing a next generation contract vehicle for complex, integrated Professional Services with an equal or ancillary Information Technology (IT) component. The vehicle will be designed to address agencies' needs for professional service requirements that:
  • Span multiple professional service disciplines.
  • Require flexibility for all contract type task orders and other direct costs at the task order level.
  • Are difficult to specify or quantify prior to award.
  • Create an environment of elevated risk due to their unanticipated nature.
