Attention Small Businesses! We Need Your Feedback on a Small Business Set-Aside

The MRO team is making good progress in the development of the new MRO strategic sourcing solution.  Currently, we think the best way to maximize small business opportunity and competition is to divide the program up into multiple pools.  Within each pool, we’ll then evaluate the idea of setting aside one or more awards to socio-economic concerns.  We are considering pools around the following broad areas:   

  • Hardware

  • Tools & Tools Cabinets

  • Paints & Finishes

  • Portable Heating and Cooling

  • Electrical & Power

 

We envision the combination of pools and set asides to be a tool to  allow agencies good opportunities to maintain or increase dollars going to small businesses.  

To meet this objective, the MRO team is looking for its solution to provide a result with adequate numbers of small businesses with breadth and depth of offerings. We believe this approach affords the opportunity for the broadest participation by small businesses within the industry and offer a solution to facilitate agencies' ability to comply with their small business goal initiatives.  

 

The team looks forward to reading your thoughts on this concept and if specific areas within MRO that optimally lends itself to Small Business.  In addition, you can send your feedback to fssi.mro@gsa.gov.
