    This is no longer a go/no-go factor; however, it is still a requirement in the RFQ. OCONUS is delivery outside of the contiguous U.S., such as Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and international locations. It does not include consolidation points.

    The following discussion/question is in regards to category discounts.  To actually achieve the low cost of goods, GSA probably needs to consider what is more important to them, either low costs on the market basket or category discounts.  ...Read More

    The average market basket discount is applied to non-market basket items.  Market basket items are quoted line by line.  See Section 7.2.2.4 of the RFQ.

    Hello, The FSSI JanSan 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.

    Will GSA be providing consolidated usage for all of the items in the market basket (by sku number)?
    FSSI JanSan Blogger
    At this time JanSan does not have usage data for items in the JanSan market basket.

    We believe that NM202  - Chair Mats & NM203 – Chair Mats are office supply products and do not fall under any of the SIN numbers for this RFQ. Please advise on how these items are classified as JanSan products?
    FSSI JanSan Blogger
    These items will be removed from the Market Basket. Sorry for the delayed response.
