Welcome to the PSC Community!
Welcome to the Professional Service Category (PSC) Community. Of GSA’s 17 categories of spend under our new Category Management initiative, Professional Services is one of the largest -- supporting federal agencies in their acquisition and management of approximately $61 billion in services annually. This community provides a forum for ongoing dialogue between GSA’s industry partners and the federal acquisition community. Through this forum GSA wants to expand the conversation with all stakeholders. We seek a collaborative, timely and informative exchange of information, opinions and advice. We also encourage you to join the OASIS and Multiple Award Schedules communities or contact us at professionalservices@gsa.gov with questions regarding our Professional Services contract vehicles. ....

What's Happening...

  • Katherine Jocoy
    As part of GSA’s work to improve the Multiple Awards Schedule program and usability of its Schedules, GSA is establishing a single Schedule contract solely for professional services. This initiative will allow Federal agencies to procure complete solutions for commercial professional service requirements using one contract, instead of eight, and will position GSA to continue to improve the quality and pricing of its contracts. In addition, one Schedule will save time and eliminate confusion often associated with managing a cadre of contracts to successfully complete requirements within a timely manner.

    Thank you for making this tool accessible to the public! I was afraid it was going to be locked up in the hallways.

    Does this replace the Wage Determination?
    Geri Haworth
    Natalie:Thank you for your question.The CALC tool does not replace wage determination.  It is a database of the awarded prices for the labor categories on the Professional Services Schedules managed by GSA (emphasis on awarded).  The CALC tool...Read More

    I also wanted to thank you all for making this available to everyone.  I think the public thank you is important considering how opinionated I've been on this topic.

    Toby:  We do appreciate your thanks!

    Last year, GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) began a comprehensive initiative to review how to better support federal agencies with their acquisition needs. We analyzed the basics: how, who, and where agencies buy goods and services; our agency customers’ collective requirements; and, what our customer agencies are asking and expecting of GSA. Initial conclusions made from this work confirmed what many have known:

    Imagine these parts of the FAR are heavyweight prize fighting boxers. FAR 8.4 holding the title is challenged by FAR 12. Who do you think will win?
