    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.

    Can a contractor list an item on more than one GSA Schedule Contract?  We have items on our contract that would not only belong on Schedule 73, but on 56 and 75?

    Hi Maggie: Contractors should review the statement of work for each Schedule to see if their product/service is within scope of that particular Schedule.  A good resource to tap into is the GSA Schedules solicitation page [www.gsa.gov/...Read More

    GSA Schedules are a convenient, effective option for both ordering activities and Schedule contractors. Ordering activities enjoy simplified ordering procedures and reduced prices, while Schedule contractors connect with federal business quickly and easily. Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) greatly enhance the flexibility of the program. BPA features offer:

    GSA Schedule contractors can now sell to the American National Red Cross through their Federal Supply Schedules contract.  Section 2 of the Federal Supply Schedules Usage Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-263), provides that in furtherance of the purposes of the American National Red Cross as set forth in 36 U.S.C. § 300102, the Administrator of General Services may provide for the use of the Federal Supply Schedules. GSA, pursuant to this Act, has authorized the American National Red Cross to access Schedules when purchasing in furtherance of its purposes as set forth in 36 U.S.C.

    To better meet the needs of GSA’s customer agencies, a deviation to FAR Part 51.1 has been approved to expand the authority of contractors to use GSA sources of supply placed on a time-and-materials (T&M)/labor-hour (LH) basis. Federal Government contracting officers have been authorized to give all GSA contractors access to the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) and GSA Global Supply Programs when deemed appropriate for fulfillment of their agency requirements. Please note that the FSS Program is inclusive of those Schedules managed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    Recently, an incumbent contractor contested the 2008 decision of the United States Air Force to procure credit reports using GSA Schedules rather than continue its past practice of sole sourcing the requirement under SBA's 8(a) program. The Plaintiff's challenge failed in the United States Court of Federal Claims (CoFC).

    Are you aware how the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) addresses the policy on handling open market items on Federal Supply Schedues (FSS) contracts? Open market items are also known as incidental items, noncontract items, non-Schedule items, and items not on a GSA Schedule contract.

    There is no limit on the dollar value of open market items on Schedule orders.  However, FAR 8.402(f) states that open market items can be added to Schedules orders only if "all applicable acquisition regulations pertaining to the purchase of...Read More
