    GSA has recently launched a new e-tool designed to help federal, state and local governments navigate the myriad ways to purchase IT from GSA, getting agencies to the best-fit solution for their needs. GSA’s IT Solutions Navigator will help government agencies buy IT products and services by matching customer requirements to GSA’s best IT contract vehicles quickly and effectively.

    The Multiple Awards Schedules Interact group recently sent out this information to its members (a shameless plug for you to think about joining their group, too), with this great new program that applies to all the industry partners on IT Schedule 70.  One of GSA's goals is to make it easier for our customers to obtain information on the Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) and improve the customer's overall experience with the MAS program.  As a result, GSA has developed a new service model and are pleased to announce the launch of Enhanced Customer Service Delivery (ECSD).

    A few days ago we posted the revised RFPs which we promised at our Industry Day in mid-May.  I hope by now that you’ve had time to review the documents and look forward to your comments and feedback.  In this blog entry I’d like to discuss some of the major changes we made.

    Attachment 8 - Cost/Price Template has many labor categories that seem to span all pools.  Is there an expectation that if a company is qualified for a single pool, Pool 1 for example, that they are required to fill out Attachment 8 in its entirety...Read More

    Hi Jim,I have a follow-on question regarding Attachment 8. You state here and also in the draft Q&A that bidders must propose pricing for all labor categories. If a bidding company does not have any actuaries on staff, for example, what should...Read More

    This question references Section L.5.4.2., Past Performance.  There is a single CPARS entry for the project, but it covers a PoP many years ago, early in the contract (10/1/2007 – 9/30/2008).  The project completed March 2012.  Since...Read More

    Hello, Industry! The next blog you hear from me, hopefully very soon, will announce the release of the final RFPs.  In fact, that blog has already been written.  So, much like “Let It Be” was recorded before “Abbey Road” but released afterwards, I will post these final thoughts in a not-final blog.  (Yes, I did just implicitly compare this blog to the Beatles oeuvre.  I apologize to the Fab Four!)

    Jim - Would the government consider changing the 5 years prior to the solicitation closing date for relevant project completion to 5 years prior to the posting of the draft RFP? That allows contractors to be sure that their project will meet the 5 year...Read More
