Notice of Intent to Bundle for MRO Requisition

The General Services Administration (GSA) will be issuing a solicitation for a strategic sourcing initiative for Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) supplies for the Requisition Channel.


The FSSI MRO Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) for the Requisition Channel will cover approximately 1,823 NSNs in the market basket (highest-demand NSNs) at award, with the potential to match up to about 19,000 NSNs outside the market basket (lower-demand NSNs) over the life of the BPAs. This will be valued at approximately $552,000,000 for one (1) base year and four (4) option years. NSNs in this scope have been purchased from both small and large businesses over the past three years.  

This acquisition, valued at over $6 million, will consolidate approximately 1,746 contracts previously performed by both small and large businesses, and may be unsuitable for small business.  Therefore, the Contracting Officer has concluded this requirement meets the definition of a significant bundling of contract requirements.

Small businesses will have the opportunity to submit offers on this project.  Thirteen of the eighteen BPAs will be set aside for small business.  Large vendors will be required to submit subcontracting goals and outline small business participation in their proposal.  Therefore, GSA will ensure that small business participation is considered.  All provisions allowed per the FAR for small business participation will be utilized. The rationale for bundling is outlined in the bundling analysis posted, which is attached below.


The final RFQ will be posted on e-Buy and sent to vendors holding MAS Schedule contracts under Schedule 51V, SIN 105 002, Hardware Store, Home Improvement Center, or MRO - Catalog.

Questions can be directed to Stephen Kinsella at fssi.mro-req@gsa.gov or posted in the comments section of this post.

Incumbent small business concerns may contact their Small Business Administration representative at http://www.sba.gov/local-assistance.
