Revised JanSan Requisition Channel Market Basket Categories

On Thursday, June 19, 2014, the GSA JanSan Team published the Q&As from the Requisition Channel Industry Day as well as Q&As received in response to the Draft Requisition Channel RFQ that was published in February 2014.  Numerous comments were received regarding the formulation of the various categories within the market basket.  To address those comments, the GSA JanSan Team has regrouped the categories, four of them to match the Purchasing Channel categories and a fifth to include personal hygiene. 

The new categories are as follows:

Category 1:  Cleaning Compounds & Related Dispensers, which includes cleaning compounds used to sanitize and disinfect bathrooms, kitchens, office surfaces and hospitals. The category includes but is not limited to disinfectants, degreasers, glass cleaner, laundry detergents, dish detergents, bleach, aerosol fresheners, surface protection supplies and the related dispensers for these items.

Category 2: Non-motorized Cleaning Equipment and Trash Receptacles, which  includes both non-motorized items used to perform the physical cleaning of spaces as well as the receptacles and bags used to collect trash. Examples of products represented in the Non-Motorized Cleaning Equipment and Trash Receptacles category include, but are not limited to: brooms, mops, dustpans, mop buckets, disinfectant wipes, dusting cloths, scouring pads, sponges, mats, laundry nets and pins, irons, ironing boards, carts, indoor and outdoor trash receptacles, and trash bags of all sizes.

Category 3: Paper Products and Related Dispensers, which includes disposable paper items used for personal sanitation and cleaning up minor messes. This category includes but is not limited to toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissue and related dispensers.

Category 4: Motorized Floor Cleaning Equipment and Accessories, which includes motorized equipment used to clean floor surfaces, both carpeted and non-carpeted and includes but is not limited to upright vacuum cleaners, wet/dry vacuum cleaners, carpet cleaners, floor buffers, floor polishers and floor burnishers.

Category 5: Personal Hygiene and Related Dispensers, which includes, but is not limited to,soaps, toothpaste and toothbrushes, shaving cream and razors, hand sanitizer, and related dispensers.
