I am interested in becoming a vendor for the agencies that use Electronic Commerce to conduct business. Where can I find more information?

Vendors interested in providing products or services to the Federal government should learn more about the General Services Administration's Federal Supply Schedule. Under the schedule program, GSA enters into contracts with commercial firms to provide supplies and services at stated prices for given periods of time. Orders are placed directly with the schedule contractor, and deliveries are made directly to the customer.

What is the Secretariat for Federal EDI?

The federal government is committed to the use of national and international standards in the exchange of data with industry partners.

Each year the Federal government sends out hundreds of millions of EDI transactions. The Federal EDI Standards Management Coordinating Committee is an interagency committee helping to harmonize federal adoption of those EDI standards by coming to consensus on Federal Implementation Conventions. The support for a centralized Federal EDI standards management structure allows standards to be implemented in a coordinated, cost-effective way to minimize the impact on industry and ensure interoperability.
