The U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) is the purchasing agent for the government, with an annual procurement spending of tens of billions of dollars. The GSA establishes long-term government contracts with commercial firms to provide access to millions of commercial products and services at volume-discount pricing.
To become an approved supplier under a GSA Schedule, a business must go through the application process, which can take months to complete and be approved.
Once a contract is successfully negotiated, the business is assigned a GSA contract number and placed on a list of approved suppliers for that schedule contract vehicle, which helps avoid the usual process of bidding on individual government contracts.
A GSA Schedule is a formal agreement to sell goods or services from your company to various government departments using the terms outlined and administered by the U.S. General Service Administration. A GSA Schedule is also called a GSA Contract and although the The U.S. General Service Administration does not order from you, they do facilitate the process.
Our GSA Schedule Services Can Save You Time & Money
Government agencies use the information in the GSA Schedule to order from you. Your GSA Schedule has your contract number, the duration of your contract, the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) clauses, a description of the goods or services your company offers, the maximum rates or prices you may charge the government as well as other items.
