The Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE), a Presidential E-Government initiative managed by GSA, has facilitated every phase of the acquisition lifecycle, from market research to contract administration. The federal government has made the acquisition of goods and services streamlined and cost-effective with IAE. The goal of the IAE initiative is to integrate, unify and streamline the federal acquisition process for government buyers and sellers. The acquisition functions common to all agencies are now centrally managed as shared systems. The IAE business structure provides a secure business environment that facilitates and supports acquisition in support of agency mission performance.
