If you have been thinking of getting your company on a GSA schedule, NOW is the time to ACT!
The General Services Administration (GSA) recently announced that it will be overhauling its Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) Program by consolidating its 24 schedules (also known as Federal Supply Schedules (FSS)) into a single schedule. The transformation of GSA’s MAS Program is part of the agency’s broader Federal Marketplace strategy, which comprises 30 connected projects. The strategy is “an integrated set of policy, process and technology improvements that help [GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service] establish a seamless people-centric buying and selling experience that enables mission-driven acquisition across government.” GSA believes that this strategy will improve the buying and selling process for federal customers and current and potential vendors.
GSA currently plans to consolidate its schedule offerings into a single schedule over the course of Fiscal Years (FY) 2019 and 2020 in a three-phase process:
Phase 1 (FY2019): GSA will develop the new schedule and solicitation, and GSA will release the solicitation and close existing schedules solicitations to new offers later this FY. The solicitation for the single schedule will contain a consolidated, revised set of terms and conditions.
