    OSBU is in the process of developing a Fan Page on Facebook.  Why?  Because we want to be where small businesses access their information.  We are expanding where you can get the information you seek.  Whether it is training events, procurement opportunities, GSA updates or regional news - we want to meet you where you go for answers.  We have also added Twitter to Facebook and what we post to Facebook will go on Twitter and of course it will all come here to interact thorugh our RSS Feeds.  We are also updating our website which is scheduled to go live by EXPO next week as well as an updat

    I joined the Facebook page for OSDBU after I attended the procurement conference in DC in April. I really learned alot, made some great contacts, and even gained a client from it. I truly recommend it for folks new to government contracting.

    The attached PDF includes a collection of online resources referenced throughout the webinar that will help you learn more about federal contracting, the government procurement market, and the value of the GSA Schedules program. These resources include live links to GSA pages; tools and resources provided by other government and professional organizations; and a number of social media sites. We have also provided step-by-step instructions for some of these resources to help set you up for success.

    Can an interested party protest an agency’s solicitation for schedule contract services/supplies, cancellation of an RFQ, or the award to another contractor on the same GSA Schedule (FAR 33.101)? Yes. In the MAS solicitations, we do have Clause 52.233-2, Service of Protest (SEP 2006), and it will have the address where to obtain written acknowledgement from the Contracting Officer.
