GSA turns 65 the only way possible – by talking about how much things have changed

Bookmark and Share

The General Services Administration is celebrating its 65th birthday by highlighting how much government work has changed over the decades.

Ori Hoffer, social media strategist at GSA, said in a blog post that employees used to use manual typewriters and process contract bids by hand, but now use a wide array of technology to help shorten and simplify the process.

The agency also has evolved from testing natural gas as a vehicle fuel to using electric and hybrid cars in its rental fleet.

“While the people and the technology have changed, and the mission statement may be a bit different, the goal is still the same – streamline the administrative work of the federal government,” Hoffer said.
