WASHINGTON D.C.—Subcommittee on Government Operations and the Federal Workforce Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) introduced H.R. 7524 , the GSA Technology Accountability Act to ensure GSA is held accountable to Congress and the American people in how it spends taxpayer dollars on technology projects and initiatives.

“Almost a year ago, we began an investigation into after the GSA Inspector General reported that, which falls under Technology Transformation Services (TTS) within GSA, misrepresented the level of service it provided to its customers. Our work is ongoing, but one thing was clear: there is insufficient transparency into TTS operations. This legislation is aimed at providing answers to basic questions: what projects is TTS working on, how much do they cost, how much revenue do they bring in, and are agencies getting what they paid for when working with TTS? This legislation will allow the Oversight Committee to conduct appropriate oversight, rein in what for too long has been an unaccountable organization that seemingly thought it could play by its own rules, and protect both GSA agency customers and American taxpayers,” said Subcommittee Chairman Sessions. 

The GSA Technology Accountability Act requires the GSA Administrator to submit an annual report to Congress regarding each project funded by the Citizen Services Fund and some projects funded by the Acquisition Services Fund. Right now, there is no transparency into how these funds, which are the primary source of funding for TTS projects and initiatives, are allocated. This bill expands congressional oversight capabilities and includes several measures to ensure the GSA provides information about funded projects and explanations for the basis of projects as well as timelines and potential reimbursements.

The GSA Technology Accountability Act follows the Government Operations and Federal Workforce Subcommittee’s oversight of GSA Technology Transformation Services’ product, which an Inspector General report found has intentionally misled agencies about its technical capabilities.
