    GSA is scheduled to put into production a major Reverse Auction system enhancement the week of March 17, 2014.  We are in the process of updating our training material to include screen shots and instructions that include the enhancement's added functionality.  In order not to train our customers and vendors on navigation that will soon change, GSA will forego training on March 5 and offer training on the newly enhanced system bi-weekly beginning March 19th.

    Contractors that wish to get on a GSA Schedule (or any Federal contract) must have a DUNS number. A DUNS number is a unique nine character identification number provided by the Dun and Bradstreet company.

    Maybe we could add a "Doing Automotive Repairs for Fleet" option be at the 1st page of the SAM reason for updates section? Something taylored specifically to our vendors, making the updating process less time consuming. Just a thought thanks

      GSA recently updated its Green Procurement Compilation (GPC) -- formerly Green Products Compilation -- to include several new features, including a portal devoted to green services. The GPC is a publicly available web site that allows users to identify applicable federal green purchasing requirements for products and services.

    According to a risk assessment by the Social Security Administration (SSA) Office of Inspector General (OIG), the agency’s policies and procedures governing its purchase and travel card programs address the requirements of the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012, and it has additional internal controls in place to support oversight.

    The GSA Mentor Protege Program is designed to encourage and motivate GSA prime contractors to assist small businesses and enhance their capability of performing successfully on GSA prime contracts and subcontracts. The program is intended to foster the establishment of long-term relationships between small businesses and GSA prime contractors and increase the overall number of small businesses that receive GSA prime contract and subcontract awards.
