The General Service Administration has suspended this year’s Expo and training conference due to budget constraints.

According to a report from Federal News Radio, GSA spokesman Dan Cruz said the current budget situation will affect the ability of GSA and other agencies to cover travel costs.

The expo has been used for training federal customers on how to use the schedule and assisted acquisitions service, with vendors in attendance to show off products and services. The event had been scheduled for mid-May in Orlando.
