    If a GSA  Schedule holder has a teaming agreement with another GSA schedule holder, whose Category Number applies when bidding?  Can the teaming member use the primary's Category Number when bidding if they do not have the category number on their GSA schedule?  For example,  the primary has category numbers of 132-33 and 132-34 and the teaming member has a category number of 132-51 (but not 132-33 and 132-34).  Can the teaming member bid for an item under the primary's category number if they do not have that number on their GSA Schedule?

    The red dot with 15.45% price reduction highlighted - really grabs your attention.  The use of the the GSA logo and their contract number at the bottom is right on target!  Great job Government Whiteboards!

    This contractor is actually using the older versions of the GSA Schedule and SmartPay logos. Contractors should go to www.gsa.gov/logos (and accept the terms) to download the most up-to-date GSA logos.

    Attached is a pdf file for the updated 5-12-00022 Training Opportunities Slipsheet.     The general slipsheet refers customers to gsa.gov/csd to find their local CSD.  (A minimal stock will be available at CMLS after January 25th).  This is a low-resolution pdf and CSDs can easily email and/or print on a laser printer.

    Thank you to our Greater Southwest Acquisition Center  for sharing their tutorial on how to conduct searches within FPDS.  (you can find them in the document section of this group).  As you know, FPDS is a powerful database that can be used to conduct market research and see what and who are buying in the government.  It's a good place to start to develop and hone in on your target market.  For questions or comments about these instructions you may contact Sandra Clerk-Brown at 817-850-8211 or sandra.clerk-brown@gsa.gov.
