      GSA is just beginning to set the path for the future Building Maintenance & Operations (BMO) services strategic sourcing program. However, one thing is for sure--once completed, the building maintenance and operations services covered by this new solution will be available for ALL federal agencies to use.

      The Building Maintenance & Operations (BMO) services strategic sourcing development team is working to develop its menu of best practices and future acquisition solution. Last month, GSA hosted a web conference, dedicated to engaging commercial industry and BMO service providers. Over 300 individuals from around the country participated, generating over 400 comments and questions about the future BMO program. (A complete list of these questions and our answers will be posted within the next two weeks).

      During our virtual training sessions on the "Doing Business with GSA" Web Series we often have small businesses that would like to connect.  So we have created this discussion area to provide a source of community for those of you who understand that value.

      In 2013, Building Maintenance and Operations (BMO) was selected as one of five new commodity categories to be considered as a potential Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI). GSA, in addition to a team comprised of representatives from 18 federal agencies, is now in the process of developing a government-wide program designed to improve the way the federal government purchases and manages these types of services.

    Derek: Thanks for your question. The four potential solutions to date, besides BMO, are Rental Cars, Furniture, Large Desktop Publishing and Cyber Security. Human Resources Services and Training also is under consideration. All of these programs are in...Read More
