    I'm interested to learn YOUR definition of green acquisition. To put the conversation into context, I work for a small, professional services firm that provides CMa (Construction Manager as agent) services for GSA. We don't design or build anything, but we're GSA's eyes and ears on a construction site. We ensure that buildings are built the way GSA expects, and mitigating risk to the Government.

    The original post by Garrett contained very good points. My view of "Green Services" is that there is a high probability that an all-encompassing definition will not be found. Defining a green service will most likely be...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.

    Under Disaster Recovery Purchasing, state and local government entities may purchase GSA Federal Supply Schedule products and services to facilitate recovery from a major disaster, terrorism, or nuclear, biological, chemical, or radiological attack. State and local government entities may use GSA Schedule contracts to purchase products and services in advance of a major disaster declared by the president, as well as in the aftermath of an emergency event.

      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.
