    In OS2, basic office supply items such as pens, paper, toner cartridges, staples, etc. are considered in-scope.  For OS3, should we expand the scope to include small "stand alone" office furniture items such as tables and chairs not part of integrated  or modular furniture systems?

    Yes it makes sense to adjust the scope to include the listed items in FSSI OS3 .

    Only if OS3 is open to new contractors.  OS2 continued from an option period of OS1 and OS2 appears to be heading in the same direction (please correct me if I am wrong).  The FSSI OS program has been a point of pride for GSA, but it is a...Read More

    IT Schedule 70 associates set out to increase customer awareness of GSA’s Cooperative Purchasing and Disaster Purchasing programs this year. While state and local sales represent only a fraction of the overall sales for IT Schedule 70, the overall state and local IT market is forecasted to reach $60B in FY14.

    I just signed onto gsa, for the purpose of establishing a IDQ contract. I'm not sure where to go from here! Any comments that could send me in the right direction?

    This is not user friendly--especially using vdi (teleworking)!  If you need to go back to take a test over again, you must log out and in again.  Then the password does not work.  Very time-consuming! And there's no place to go for...Read More

    I was under the impression that the OASIS Large and OASIS SB would come out under different timeframes instead of both on the same day.  Is the still the case or will both come out together?
    OASIS Blogger
    The contracts will be issued and awarded together.  We have maintained this from the beginning.

    Date:           July 24, 2013 Start Time:  11:00 a.m. ET End Time:   12:00 p.m. ET GSA has launched its government managed Reverse Auction Platform. It went live July 1, 2013, and is ready for use. This training will provide users of the system information on the benefits of using reverse auctioning to obtain quotes, prices paid data and level 3 agency spend data. It will also take users through the auction process utilizing the tool and offer a question and answer session.

    One suggestion for the new GSA auction platform would be to enable GSA contract holders to view available auctions right from their ebuy page as opposed to having to log out from ebuy and then log back into the auction site. This feature would save time...Read More

    For the upcoming OS3 program, how should GSA procure office supplies Outside the Contiguous United States (OCONUS)? Should we ship directly from the U.S. or should we look into buying from overseas (local) suppliers? Your opinion counts, please share your suggestions with us. Thanks!
