    GS-27F-0026X is exactly correct Alan. First make sure that you're squared away with CCR and Orca. SBA is who you work with for 8a status. And lastly, I highly recommend going to the Vendor Support Center vsc.gsa.gov and take their 'New Contractor...Read More

    In the short experience I have had so far with the government opportunities, I have found that there is so much information out there, it is vastly overwhelming. The OSBU has been helpful... but only to a point. My "blanket" response (and this...Read More

    I looked into your question and found that the training seems to be moved to http://interact.gsa.gov/gsa-training.  Yaisa Reeves is listed as the POC for the previous site and I have put an email into her to get a response to your question on the...Read More

    I spoke to the program manager - the CAE site is no longer funded and will be removed in about 30 days.  The earlier message I provided is the current resource.  If there are any additional questions you may use the contact information...Read More

    Yes. This is possible but only if the Ordering Officer has the Schedule contractor recertify its business size at the task order level.  This would most likely (but not exclusively) occur where the NAICS Code used by the GSA Schedule CO is different than the NAICS Code representing the preponderance of the work on a particular task order.

    GSA Schedule contractors can now sell to the American National Red Cross through their Federal Supply Schedules contract.  Section 2 of the Federal Supply Schedules Usage Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-263), provides that in furtherance of the purposes of the American National Red Cross as set forth in 36 U.S.C. § 300102, the Administrator of General Services may provide for the use of the Federal Supply Schedules. GSA, pursuant to this Act, has authorized the American National Red Cross to access Schedules when purchasing in furtherance of its purposes as set forth in 36 U.S.C.

      Summary:  The Court of Federal Claims (COFC) has ruled in K-LAK Corporation v. The United States (COFC 09-771C, March 09, 2011) that the Air Force acted appropriately when it chose not to exercise an option on a procurement which was an 8(a) set aside and then awarded it under the FABS Schedule instead.

    Is GSA looking at developing an app for smartphone/tablet users?  If not, would they consider doing so?Thanks,Hannah LeGrande
    Charley Schollaert
    Thanks for your question, Hannah. The short answer is yes, development of an Android/iOS/Blackberry app is under consideration. Right now Interact is viewable on iOS and Android devices as well as on most Blackberry devices, so there is access from the...Read More

    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.

    Recently, an incumbent contractor contested the 2008 decision of the United States Air Force to procure credit reports using GSA Schedules rather than continue its past practice of sole sourcing the requirement under SBA's 8(a) program. The Plaintiff's challenge failed in the United States Court of Federal Claims (CoFC).
