    Hello, The FSSI JanSan Team is gearing up to release the final RFQ. In advance of the public release, we ask that you review and comment on the revised market basket.  Please carefully review the item descriptions - we want to know if they make sense or if you feel improvement is needed.  Are the descriptions clear? Should more information be provided, etc.? When suggesting improvements, be specific so we can make any necessary revisions. And be sure to include the item Reference ID so we know exactly to which item you are referring.

    Will GSA be providing consolidated usage for all of the items in the market basket (by sku number)?

    We believe that NM202  - Chair Mats & NM203 – Chair Mats are office supply products and do not fall under any of the SIN numbers for this RFQ. Please advise on how these items are classified as JanSan products?
    FSSI JanSan Blogger
    These items will be removed from the Market Basket. Sorry for the delayed response.

    GSA's Regional office, located in Denver Colorado, reached out to state and local jurisdictions to offer its support in assisting in any way possible.  In summary, 1. 17 counties effected. 2. Garrett Pride (our local Customer Service Director) last week, sent emails to contacts to the 17 effected counties and the surrounding counties educating them on GSA solutions. 3. He has also reached out to his own state and local contacts in the effected areas.
