GSA Initiates Move Toward Shared Services with New Solicitation

The General Services Administration has “released a presolicitation…seeking a software-as-a-service payroll solution called NewPay,” according to Federal Times. The presolicitation notes the agency intends to “compete its requirement to modernize the Payroll and Work Schedule and Leave Management (WSLM) ecosystem.”

NewPay “will be used to provide payroll, work schedule, and leave-management shared services for as many as two million federal employees across agencies.”

The announcement fits with the priorities outlined under the President’s Management Agenda, notably the goal of moving toward shared quality services and modernizing the federal government’s IT capabilities.

GSA issued a press release in support of the solicitation, which said the system “potentially benefits every federal civilian employee in the Executive Branch, including the civilian workforce within the armed services and quasi-federal agencies.”

The agency said the system “will provide user-friendly self-service options, future cost-avoidance and increased efficiency in a secure environment.”

“GSA is seeking either a payroll-only solution or a payroll, work schedule and leave management solution, and will be accepting responses on both options,” writes Jessie Bu. “The contract could reach over $2.5 billion and span 13 years.”

Bloomberg Government says the federal government plans to “phase in the new system with 50,000 federal civilian employees inside the continental U.S.”
