The General Services Administration (GSA) maintains supply records on over 210,000 items, with about 37,500 of these stocked in depots at an inventory value of $223 million. The remaining items are available to federal agencies through the GSA special buying program.

The GSA has participated in an item-reduction program but has not fully assumed responsibility for making it effective. GSA has only recently begun to develop an item-reduction study capability; has continued to buy nonstandard items although the standard items are available; and has not established controls to first issue nonstandard inventory and then fill customer requests with the standard items.
