"Unleash Your Expertise, Fueling IT Excellence Together"

Welcome to the governmentwide Information Technology Vendor Management Office (ITVMO) web portal! This platform is the federal IT markplace’s one-stop-shop for IT acquisition intelligence -- informing smarter, faster IT procurements.

Here, we invite you to share your expertise, perspectives, and resources to strengthen governmentwide procurement practices. We are seeking insights, intelligence, and information to normalize the procurement of emerging technologies, boost market equity through small business utilization, enhance zero trust cybersecurity knowledge, and build a more robust software supply chain. Through this we hope to advance interoperability, mitigate risks, and improve the effectiveness of the government.

We value your feedback, insights, and contributions as we strive to foster collaboration, innovation, and best practices. At the ITVMO, we seek to stay at the forefront of the latest policies and trends in areas such as Software Licensing, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, and more. We are also committed to supporting a diverse and equitable marketplace. Diversity is what ensures we have a robust supply chain to mitigate risks and gain efficiencies with more competitive pricing.

As an engine of innovation, small businesses play a vital role in the federal IT ecosystem. We invite you to contribute resources, tools, and services that can assist small businesses in navigating the federal procurement process, accessing opportunities, and growing their presence in the government IT market. More importantly, we seek information that will also help inform agency acquisition strategies to better utilize small businesses to meet their mission needs.

Federal IT Procurement is a complex and ever-evolving field. By sharing your experiences, best practices, and lessons learned, you can help improve the efficiency, transparency, and effectiveness of federal IT procurements and resulting operations. Your insights can drive positive change and contribute to better outcomes for both government agencies and IT vendors.
