<p>For the actual RFQ or RFP is it anticipated respondents will need to have a schedule 71 contract or will it be open to all companies including those who are not on GSA schedule?</p>
GSA Furniture Expert
<p><span style="color: rgb(31, 73, 125); font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;">The exact acquisition strategy planning is still in the very early stages, so no determination has been made at this time, but we welcome feedback and comments from industry.</span></p>
<p>Is this RFI mandatory for those interested in a future rfp or fssi furniture contract?</p>
<p>Thank you for your quick response I do have one other question. Is this RFI only open to those already on Schdeule 71 or can any company respond?</p>
GSA Furniture Expert
<p>The RFI is open to any companies that are interested in responding, regardless if they hold a GSA Schedule contract or not.</p>
<p>I would like to clarify the due date for the White Papers. Based on my reading of the RFI I believe it is 4/25/2014. Can you please confirm this?</p>
GSA Furniture Expert
<p>Yes, that is correct. &nbsp;April 25, 2014 is the closing date.</p>
