The General Services Administration (GSA) is an independent agency of the United States government. It was created in 1949 to help manage and support the basic functioning of federal agencies.

GSA gives products and communications for U.S. government offices, provides transportation and office space to federal employees, and develops government-wide cost-minimizing policies and other management tasks.[7]
