Sales through the US General Services Administration on the US market will total $30 billion this year.
Israeli exports to the US federal government market will reach $100 million in the next two years, compared with none at present. 40-50 Israeli companies will be included in US government civil procurement, through the US General Services Administration (GSA), Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute director Yechiel Assia said yesterday.
Assia added that GSA Office of Acquisition Policy deputy associate administrator David Drabkin would visit Israel in January to discuss expanding cooperation, and would participate in a seminar for exporters with the potential to export to the US federal government market.
Assia also said that sales through the US General Services Administration on the US market would total $30 billion this year, and are forecast to rise to $50 billion next year. The projected rise is due to new legislation passed in May, which enables all 50 states of the United States to procure information technology products through the GSA.
