It’s the first anniversary of GSA’s Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) Wireless blanket purchase agreements (BPAs), a program designed to save and consolidate government spending on wireless costs.
To commemorate the program’s first birthday, take a look at what we’ve done.
Turning Up the Savings
Today the 18 agencies using the FSSI Wireless BPAs are achieving an average savings of 24 percent compared to their previous wireless agreements and current average rates across government as a whole. A good example is the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), which achieved 30 percent savings.
In FY 2014, the average monthly adoption growth through January has exceeded 100 percent. As of March 31, the program exceeded $1 million in spend for FY 2014. As the FSSI Wireless program continues to grow, we believe the federal government will realize $0.24 savings for every dollar spent on wireless services and devices.
Providing Additional Program Options
Government agencies who want to manage their wireless resources as part of their entire enterprise systems can also add resources from GSA’s Managed Mobility sources of supply list or use FSSI Wireless BPA industry partners to receive quotes on mobile management resources they can bundle with wireless service plans.
Reaching the Big Goal
Our goal is to save hundreds of millions of dollars over the next five years. GSA is committed to working closely with agencies across the federal government to realize potential savings.
