Supplies and Automation

Allowing funeral homes to submit 721 - Report of Death by Funeral Director - data electronically through an automated gateway would save hundreds of hours of employee time each year and store records that currently are not consistently documented from office to office.


Further, each office spends hundreds of dollars each year purchasing supplies from retail suppliers. By establishing a central division of GSA dedicated to office supplies and offering a set list of standard options purchased from suppliers directly, the Agency would save thousands in retail markups and provide consistency in office appearance nationwide. It would also help to even out shortages and surpluses caused by overpromising or over-ordering.
