    eBuy, GSA’s request-for-quote (RFQ) system, has been updated to facilitate set-asides. Now you can choose whether your requirement will be set-aside for small business or another small business category.  If you decide to set-aside the requirement, then the RFQ will be viewable only by eligible Schedule contractors. For example, only HubZone Schedule contractors could view a RFQ set-aside for HubZone small business concerns.

    Maureen,Thank you. I have read all of that information. I am still confused on whether or not a Large Business can team up with a small business since a large business has to give so much of their business/work to small businesses. Wouldn't that be...Read More

    Hi,Large businesses are required to meet their small business subcontracting goals, but that doesn't prevent them from teaming with other schedule holders to provide a total solution to the Government.  If the Government is looking for a...Read More

      Brad and I often talk about cancelling BPAs in the, “Using GSA Multiple Award Schedules for Professional Services”, seminar. I just wanted to provide you with sample terminology for this purpose.

    ServCorp has held an MAS for over 5 years which was awarded with the selling price to the GSA at mark up from cost.  Suddenly, with the last EPA mod I submitted just a few months ago, the existing C/O insisted that I include the list price for each item and provide the selling price based on discount from list. The problem is that not ALL of the products we sell have a list price.  Additionally, we have not received any mods for this contract which changes the terms & conditions.  I also have great difficulty in getting responses from the C/O.
