In October 2015, GSA consolidated its professional services Multiple Award Schedule offerings into one Professional Services Schedule (PSS). Prior to the consolidation of the seven single MAS schedules (MOBIS,PES, Logworld, AIMs, FABs, Environmental and Language), if an agency had requirements that crossed over multiple schedules they would have to, in most cases, issue multiple RFQs. Under the PSS program if an agency has multiple requirements that cross over multiple services they now simply issue a single RFQ.

With the newly established Professional Services Schedule (PSS), the benefits for a more stream lined efficient ordering process under FAR 8.4, agencies can:

• Save time

• Customize their terms and conditions

• Ensure adequate small business participation

• Obtain total solutions to complex professional-services requirements from a single source

• Reduce costs associated with managing various Schedules

• Increase program efficiency through fewer contracts and solicitations and do it all through the use of simplified acquisition procedures.
