About the Division of Contracting and General Services (CGS)

Our Mission

To support the Fish and Wildlife Service's mission to work with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people by developing policy and managing programs for acquisition, personal property, Government quarters, space leasing, and the motor vehicle fleet; and managing office facilities and providing operational acquisitions for Region 9.

What We Do

CGS is located in the Office of the Assistant Director for Business Management and Operations (BMO). BMO is an integral part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS or the Service) day-to-day operation, providing a foundation and the necessary tools for all natural resource programs to accomplish the Service's mission.

Financial Assistance is no longer managed by CGS; it is being managed by the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program.

The Integrated Charge Card Program is no longer managed by CGS; it is being managed by the Division of Financial Management (DFM).
