WASHINGTON — Today, the U.S. General Services Administration released its Generative AI and Specialized Computing Infrastructure Acquisition Resource Guide. This resource, which will be updated as technologies develop, will support the federal acquisition community as it buys generative AI solutions and related specialized computing infrastructure. 
This is one of many actions announced as the Biden-Harris Administration marks the first 180 days of the Executive Order 14110 on Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence.
“This guide is a key part of our commitment to equipping the federal community to responsibly and effectively deploy generative AI technologies to benefit the American people,” said GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan. “This new guide lays out the common challenges, use cases, and other helpful information to support government as it navigates the growing AI marketplace and starts to leverage the power of AI to better deliver for the American people.”
The guide includes considerations for the responsible acquisition of generative AI and introduces questions that contracting officers should ask to make informed procurement decisions. Additional topics in the guide include: 
“Generative AI technology will continue to evolve and we know that this resource guide should continue to evolve with it,” said Laura Stanton, GSA’s Office of Information Technology Category Assistant Commissioner who posted a blog today further discussing the guide for the federal community. “Contracting officers will play a critical role by working closely with program and IT staff to find, source, acquire and make secure the right generative AI solutions for agencies’ needs. This guide is a start to help the acquisition community enable their agencies to responsibly harness the power of this promising technology and better serve the American people.”
In addition to the guide, GSA’s other responsibilities in implementing the executive order include:
