GSA Seeks Ideas to Aggregate, Report Travel Data

AirportRunwayThe General Services Administration has asked industry to submit ideas for what tools and services the agency can use to aggregate and report information on travel spending into a single platform.

Agencies collectively spend $15 billion per year on travel services and the government’s visibility into annual travel spend is currently fragmented into several different data source types, GSA said in a request for information dated Aug. 16.

GSA said it aims to understand current capabilities of aggregation tools, which the agency could use to collect back office data from multiple travel agencies into a single standardized database and track charge card data from multiple card providers.

The agency is also examining reporting features that work to access aggregated data sources and produce travel management reporting according to current commercial standards.

Third, the agency wants industry to help GSA understand current analytics and consulting services offerings for producing the reports and making travel management decisions.

Responses are due to the agency by 9:00 a.m. Eastern time on Sept. 16.
