Important Security enhancement for GSA Advantage
Section 1122 of the fiscal year 1994 National Defense Authorization Act established the authority for states and units of local government to purchase law enforcement equipment through federal procurement channels, provided that the equipment is used in the performance of counter-drug activities. The "1122 Program" affords state and local governments the opportunity to maximize their use of taxpayer dollars, by taking advantage of the purchasing power of the federal government to receive discounts commensurate with large volume purchases.
The authority for the 1122 Program resides with the Department of Defense. The U.S. Army, as the executive agent of the program, formed a steering committee initially consisting of representatives from GSA, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), and the Department of Justice (DOJ). Today, the Army, GSA, and DLA are actively involved in the program.

Administrative Report Card
Since 2002, GSA has been using a Contractor Report Card, as part of the Multiple Award Schedule’s (MAS) Contractor Assessment Initiative, to reflect how well MAS contractors manage and comply with contractual requirements. The Report Card combines results of Industrial Operations Analysts’ visits to contractor facilities with Administrative Contracting Officer input regarding contract compliance.
