To attract health information technology vendors and buyers to the federal marketplace, the General Services Administration plans to include a special item number (SIN) for health IT offerings on its IT Schedule 70—the largest, and most widely used acquisition vehicle in the federal government.

GSA published a request for information on June 16 to seek public and private sector input on the proposed health IT SIN. These numbers are designed to group similar technology offerings for the government and to make it easier for buyers to compare product costs and features. According to GSA, the health IT market is “sufficiently mature” for this SIN to attract both vendors and government buyers to its IT Schedule 70, which provides technology products and services to federal, state, and local governments.
