    I see on GSA's Eligible Users list (ADM 4800) that NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) can purchase from GSA schedules. Can NATO member countries purchase from the schedules as well? Thank you.

    GSA is embarking on several initiatives to improve the quality of our offerings on Multiple Award Schedules (MAS). As such, we are seeking strong collaboration with our industry partners to help us improve product number data quality on MAS through submission of all awarded base products and associated descriptive data on GSA Advantage.  The anticipated outcome of this effort is to provide agencies with quality, meaningful, and complete data to better search and compare products.

    Yesterday I got a call from a very nice guy asking me some questions and trying to see if a GSA Contract would be worth pursuing for his customer. He specifically asked me how many government contracts go through the GSA, and I didn't know the exact answer, so I did some research. Comparing GSA sales numbers from the GSA Schedule Search Query (SSQ) to overall federal contract numbers from usaspending.gov, I was able to calculate the percentages of federal contracts that are GSA contracts from 2008 - 2011. I turned he results into a blogpost here:

    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
