Networx orders to be managed online

The General Services Administration is developing a set of online tools for agencies to use in managing orders under the Networx contracts.

Speaking today at GSA’s second Networx Transition Summit in Reston, Va., Debbie Hren, lead for transition and operations planning at GSA, said the system will become available piece by piece in the next year.

The GSA Operations Support Systems will include tools for maintaining and managing inventory, conducting research on vendor pricing, placing orders, and billing, she said. This is a counterpart to similar systems that vendors are required to have.

The first piece of the system, known as the Transition Baseline Inventory, is already up and running, Hren said. It includes information about network hardware and services that agencies obtained under the FTS 2001 contract.

Additional elements of the system include:

  • Pricer, which is set for an April launch.
  • Networx Inventory, which is due in November.
  • Billing, which is slated to be released in January 2008.

The release date for the ordering system has not yet been determined.
