In the midst of growing concern over budget cuts and with the looming sequester that promises even scarcer resources, the Government Services Administration has “suspended” its annual training conference, the agency said in a Feb. 26th statement.
“The GSA Expo and Training conference serves as a valuable forum for government procurement professionals to receive acquisition training and where vendors can access business opportunities with the government and industry to interact for the benefit of the American people,” the GSA announced on its website.
“However, in the current fiscal climate, agencies and businesses alike have been forced to make tough spending cuts,” the announcement continued. “After carefully reviewing the projected spending and attendance for this year’s conference, GSA is suspending Expo for 2013 in an effort to use our resources responsibly and to deliver better value and savings for our government partners, our vendors, and the American people.”
