Is a recording of this training available? I asked a question in the chat during the webinar that isn't listed on the Q&A attachment and since it was answered verbally, it's not on the slides either.

Hello Tami, apologies for the delay. The Refresh 9 Training (11/24/21) webinar is not yet uploaded to GSA Interact or YouTube. Please view the Advanced Notice for MAS Refresh 9 and Upcoming Mass Modification - Updated with Training & Price Proposal Attachments to this post, which may be helpful until the webinar is uploaded to the MAS Interact page. If you'd like to send in your question directly to our subject matter experts to get the answer again, please email opcpolicymailbox@gsa.gov. Thank you for your patience.

Will Refresh 9 have an affect on an offer submitted under Refresh 5 (with Refresh 8 Compliance) which is currently in review by GSA?
MAS Blogger
Normally, Contracting Officers (COs) request that offerors amend their in-house offer to match the current solicitation as it's refreshed. Please reach out to your CO directly to get clarification.
