JanSan Request for Information Posted for Small Business Participation

 

The JanSan 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 groups of related offerings, or pools. Within each pool, we’ll then evaluate the idea of setting aside one or more awards to socio-economic categories. We are considering pools around the following broad areas:
 

  • Cleaning Compounds & Related Dispensers

  • Non Motorized Cleaning Equipment & Waste Collection Supplies

  • Paper Products & Related Dispensers

  • Motorized Floor Cleaning Equipment

  • Motorized Laundry Cleaning Equipment

As part of its market research, GSA has issued an RFI via the GSAAdvantage!® eBuy platform to determine if there are an adequate number of qualified small business FSS schedule contractors capable of supplying products.
