    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.

    Have MRO-awarded contracts been placed on GSA Advantage?

    Barring any unforseen reasons, the new pricing should be up and available on GSA Advantage by early- to mid-August. Stay tuned here for an announcement about the solution coming very soon!

    I recently heard that the number of contracts to be awarded has been increased. Is this true?

    As small contractors, many of us are confused about who qualifies for the BPA'S. We couldn't find a clear explanations pertaining to this matter. Also, if a contractor doesn't have any items in the market basket does it mean they are not...Read More

    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.

    Hello, The FSSI MRO Team is gearing up to release the final RFQ. In advance of the public release, we ask that you review and comment on the revised market basket.  Please carefully review the item descriptions - we want to know if they make sense or if you feel improvement is needed.  Are the descriptions clear? Should more information be provided, etc.? When suggesting improvements, be specific so we can make any necessary revisions. And be sure to include the item Reference ID so we know exactly to which item you are referring.

    I'm a little confused.  An earlier blog on 7/11 stated that a revised DRAFT RFQ would be released late July/early August.  This blog states that a "final RFQ" will be released soon.  Will there be another Draft RFQ released?...Read More

    There will not be another draft RFQ.

    Will any additional response to the original questions be provided regarding the lead times, Berry Amendment etc that were still left unanswered before the final RFQ is submitted?  Review of the market basket and product offerings are highly...Read More

    When has the release been postponed until? Obviously, we have eclipsed the late July/ early August time period.

    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
