    http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/101378They froze it October 2010 and said it will re-open in 24 months. With the Demand Based Model coming and some potential freezing of more Schedules, I would expect the GSA to potentially postpone the re-opening. We...Read More

    GSA is still evaluating Schedule 75 to determine if it is in the best interest of the Government to either re-open or maintain the current status.  A final decision will be published in FED BizOps within the next two weeks.
    JLEE
    After review and careful consideration, it has been determined Schedule 75 will remain closed to new offers for an additional 12 months. The Schedule will re-open effective October 1, 2013 and new offers will be accepted at that time.
