    The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is a government organization dedicated to providing and promoting management best practices and efficient government operations.  The mission of the GSA is to provide the American people and the government with the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services.

    Established by President Harry Truman on July 1, 1949, the GSA was created to help streamline the administrative work of the federal government and help administer supplies and provide workplaces for federal employees. The GSA constructs, manages, and preserves government buildings and also leases and manages commercial real estate.  In addition, the organization offers acquisitions solutions to government organizations and the military. 

    The GSA today assists with overseeing the business of the U.S. federal government and helps to offer cost-effective high-quality products and services from commercial vendors.  The organization also provides tools, equipment, and non-tactical vehicles to the United States Military and provides state and local governments with rescue and disaster recovery products, services, and equipment.

    Citizens can also get direct access to federal government program information and consumer protection information through GSA websites, including USA.gov or GSA's USAServices.gov. 

    Students in our public administration or legal studies programs can find out more information about topics that may interest them at www.gsa.gov.  Individuals interested in the GSA's training program or providing services or equipment to the U.S. government can also visit the US GSA's website to learn more.
