      I’m constantly being asked why does our facility need a “Waste Audit”?  The answer is simple.  A “Waste Audit” sets the baseline from which, all future activities concerning waste and recycling, including process, performance and cost can be measured.  The baseline has become even more important in order for federal agencies to meet the requirements stipulated in Executive Order 13514.

    Alan,Your post is a little confusing.  From my understanding, GSA does not determine 8(a) status.  I believe that is handled by the SBA.   As for obtaining a GSA  schedule contract, everything you need to know can be accessed at the...Read More

    YES! Brad and I have said the answer to this question has been no for years.  Well, now as a result of the Small Business Act of 2010 and FAR Case 2011-024, the answer is a resounding yes. It is now optional for agencies to set-aside acquisitions for small business.  For additional information: Click Here.

    The attached Guide to Considering Small Businesses When Using Schedules, an August 2009 Advisory by Catherine Poole and Paul Cataldo of Acquisition Solutions, Inc. is a particularly comprehensive and well-referenced (and not just because our former blog appears in three endnotes!) treatment of some of the Schedule order socioeconomic issues covered in this blog.

    Our company, ServCorp, Inc. holds several GSA contracts and we have noticed a dramatic decline in orders this month.  Has anyone else experienced this?

    Yes,  When questioned, most agencies indicate this is due to legislation associated with mandatory reduction in size of government.
