GSA Launches New Single Professional Services Schedule

On October 1, 2015, GSA launched the new single Professional Services Schedule (PSS) giving federal agency acquisition professionals the ability to obtain total contract solutions for their professional services requirements using one contract vehicle. Reducing eight single Schedules contracts to one, the new PSS contract provides access to the same professional services that GSA has always offered but in one easier to use contract environment.  Additionally, for both industry and GSA, the new single PSS eliminates significant contract duplication and workload previously associated with negotiating, administering, and auditing multiple contracts.

By reducing the number of contracts supporting the Professional Services category of spend, GSA will eliminate more than 700 contracts resulting in an estimated five y

ear savings of $3.95 million, and sustained savings of $1.29 million annually thereafter.   

The single PSS is one of several FAS initiatives underway to ensure that GSA contracts meet the needs of the federal acquisition community as we work to help the government be more efficient and effective, while also reducing costs and redundancies.  Another is Category Management, introduced to streamline and simplify the federal acquisition process, and allow the government to make smarter buying choices.

During the next several months FAS’s Professional Services Category team will be hosting webinars explaining the new Professional Services Schedule.  Our next webinars are on:

  • October 19, 2015: Overview for Contracting and Program Professionals (for registration information click here)

  • October 21, 2015: Overview for Contractors and Industry Stakeholders (for registration information click here)

The Professional Services Category team can also be contacted directly via email at professionalservices@gsa.gov.  We are answering questions in almost real time, so please feel comfortable reaching out to us.  Alternatively, please call GSA’s National Customer Service Center at (800) 488-3111.  

Thank you to our industry partners and the federal acquisition community for working with the Professional Services contracting team over the past year as we took on the huge task of consolidating our professional services contracts.
