Streamlining Technology Procurement for Government Agencies

Streamlining Technology Procurement for Government Agencies

On October 24th, the General Services Administration (GSA) released its “Making It Easier to do Business with the Government Report,” summarizing accomplishments by the program last year and goals for next year. As reported by Federal Times, “the GSA’s plan to streamline acquisition is about to find its second gear.”

At the federal, state and local levels, government agencies are making strides to streamline their procurement processes. These gains in efficiency are perhaps most important when it comes to the acquisition of technology products and services, which often need to be swiftly purchased and deployed in order to take advantage of the latest innovations.

Carahsoft Technology Corp. is a trusted Government IT solutions provider that serves as the master government aggregator for many best-of-breed technology vendors. This allows the company to support an extensive ecosystem of manufacturers, value-added resellers, system integrators and consulting partners committed to helping government agencies select and implement the best solution at the best possible value.

Carahsoft and its partners focus on providing technology that helps public sector customers solve IT security, management and infrastructure challenges, improve IT efficiencies and capabilities, and handle increasing workloads. The company has recently expanded its solutions portfolio with the addition of Lexis Nexis litigation solutions to support the in-house legal departments at government agencies.

“Government agencies continue to be asked to do more with less, and public sector legal teams are no exception,” said Michael Shrader, vice president of innovative and intelligence solutions at Carahsoft. “Through a new partnership with LexisNexis and with the support of our reseller ecosystem, we will now be able to help our customers address those challenges by providing the tools they need to be efficient, cost-effective and successful while managing litigation.”

Carahsoft recently entered into an agreement with LexisNexis in which Carahsoft will serve as a master government aggregator for LexisNexis litigation software solutions, making them available to the public sector via Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule 70 and SEWP V contracts.

“LexisNexis works with government organizations to apply the right mix of technologies to help agencies meet challenges related to data management, FOIA, public records requests and open data initiatives,” said Shrader. “These solutions can help agencies balance the need for transparency with privacy and national security demands.”

Carahsoft and LexisNexis have already begun collaborating on industry education initiatives, such as a webinar to help state and local government officials better understand how to navigate compliance challenges related to digital document workflow.

LexisNexis software solutions are available immediately via Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule No. GS-35F-0119Y and SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B. For more information, contact the LexisNexis team at Carahsoft at 703.871.8639.
