    GSA has made it a top priority to work closely with both our industry and federal partners throughout the MRO Purchasing Channel solicitation. GSA is confident that the MRO protest filed with GAO will be resolved or denied in a timely fashion, and that the Agency will be able to proceed with these solicitations in accordance with the Agency's projected deadline.  Pending the outcome of the protest, GSA has removed reference to the awardees and will provide the listing once there is a resolution.

    Industry Partners, Many of you have been asking questions as to when the RFQ will be released for the MRO FSSI.  We are in the final stages of receiving approval from the Strategic Sourcing Leadership Council (SSLC) and working to gather agency commitment letters.  Once this is complete we anticipate releasing the RFQ by late July or early August. Thank you for your participation in this process by providing all of your valuable questions and comments which have assisted in the development of the RFQ.

    Good Day,My question is in regard to Comment #35 - Definition of UPC-A.I understand the answer that you have recently given, however, my main question here is whether there is any diffence between a manufacturer's UPC and a UPC-A. I do believe that...Read More
    FSSI MRO Blogger
    UPC-A is used for marking products which are sold at retail in the USA. The barcode identifies the manufacturer and specific product so point-of- sale cash register systems can automatically look up the price. UPC-A is the same as the standard 12 digit...Read More

    Comment 72- you answer a confusing question for me that "if a contractor is awarded a BPA for a specific category, they may only offer products within the scope of that category in their non-market basket items. "     The rest of the...Read More
    FSSI MRO Blogger
    The correct reading is "non-market basket", not "non-market".  This means that products are within the awarded category but not in the evaluated market basket.  Please note Schedule 75 isn't applicable to the MRO...Read More
