The Administrator of General Services oversees a federal agency of about 13,000 people and an annual budget of approximately $16 billion.
Since 1949, GSA has housed federal workers and provided products and services to support the important work of government throughout the country. GSA affects almost $66 billion in financial transactions throughout the government.
The GSA Office of Governmentwide Policy is responsible for prescribing policies and procedures pertaining to government-wide travel and relocation allowances and entitlements for civilian Federal employees and transportation and traffic management.
GSA's Federal Supply Service makes available to Federal agencies a variety of commercial services programs which control and reduce Federal travel costs and encourage the economical and efficient movement of freight and household goods. GSA also contracts with commercial auditing firms to examine the government's transportation billings.
The government spends over $10 billion a year on official travel for its employees. FSS commercial travel management services programs (e.g., travel charge cards, travel consulting, travel agents, discounted City Pair fares, and lodging programs) provide participating agencies with a comprehensive approach to managing official travel.
FSS has programs to take the worry out of moving a relocated employee's household goods and to provide an agency with standardized, cost-effective freight and transportation services. These programs have been revitalized with the fielding of Transportation Management Services Solution, an innovative web-based system. Once fully developed, TMSS will allow customers to manage transportation from the time a shipment is booked until payment is made. FSS negotiates rates through the following programs:
* Centralized Household Goods Traffic Management Program gives agencies an economical and efficient method of moving the household goods of employees relocating.
* Freight Management Program offers standardized Tenders of Service which establish a uniform basis for buying freight transportation.
* Relocation Services provide total management and administration of the Government-wide employee relocation process.
* Domestic Delivery Services provide same, next, two and three business day door-to-door pickup and delivery of express small packages and heavyweight shipments.
