IMPORTANT: Upcoming Refresh/Mass Modification for the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) and Other FAS contract vehicles to implement EO 14042, Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors

 

GSA appreciates the hard work and dedication of our contractors, especially during such an extraordinary time. The health and safety of GSA employees, contractors, and their families are our top priorities. In order to ensure the health and safety of the federal workforce and contractor community, the President signed Executive Order 14042, Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors

 

The requirements in the Executive Order (EO) are being implemented across all government contracts via a Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) deviation. The clause in the FAR deviation will be incorporated into GSA contracts via a bilateral modification.

Acceptance of the contract modification is required for all Schedule contractors. GSA anticipates that the Schedule refresh and issuance of mass modifications will begin around October 8th, 2021, as detailed in the attached Significant Changes document.  For other than Schedule contracts for FAS, see Attachment C of the GSA Class Deviation 2021-13 for applicability to your specific contract.  

A summary of the changes and draft text of the new clause can be found in the PDF attachment below titled “Draft Significant Changes.”
