<p>My company 3Vesta is an SBA approved mentor/protogee joint venture, as well, a ASB prime.&nbsp; We are very interested in teaming with small health It firms with experience with the Federal Government health systems.&nbsp; We would like to know if the attendees list was available for distribution.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Debra -</p><p>My apologies if the answer was either communicated incorrectly or was misinterpreted.&nbsp; However, GSA IT Schedule 70 (Refresh 36) solicitation clearly states - If you are a previous GSA Schedule contractor under Schedule 70, and your contract has been cancelled or an option not exercised due to low or no sales (in accordance with Clause I-FSS-639, Contract Sales Criteria), you must wait at least 12 months from the date of cancellation or expiration of your previous Schedule Contract before submitting another offer under this schedule. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">You may resubmit another offer under this Schedule prior to the 12 month waiting period; however you must meet additional requirements. Any offer submitted without the additional requirements, prior to the completion of the 12 month waiting period will be automatically rejected.&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">To be considered for contract award prior to the 12 month period (within 12 months&nbsp;after having a previous Schedule 70 contract cancelled or expired due to low or no sales), you must:&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">(1) include a copy of the cancellation letter or notification of determination not to exercise an option,&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">(2) demonstrate current federal sales in excess of $25,000, as evidenced by copies of contractual documents that identify the federal entity and the date and value of the product or services provided,&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">(3) be able to demonstrate that there is a reasonable expectation that any future award will comply with Clause I-FSS-639, Contract Sales Criteria,&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">(4) provide a marketing plan detailing the steps you plan to take to generate sales through a new GSA Schedule contract, and&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">(5) submit a copy of the certificate stating that one of your current employees, who is an authorized negotiator for this offer, has completed the &#39;Pathway to Success&#39; training within the past year. Acceptance and satisfactory completion of the additional requirements is at the sole discretion of the Contracting Officer.&nbsp;</p><p style="margin-left:13.5pt;">INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING AN OFFER AFTER ALREADY HAVING ONE OR MORE OFFERS REJECTED IN THE PRECEDING TWO (2) YEARS: There are additional requirements for a company that has had a previous GSA IT Schedule 70 Offer/Proposal rejected within the preceding two (2) years. GSA cannot evaluate a previously rejected Offer/Proposal, but rather, the company must resubmit the rejected Offer as a new Offer/Proposal, in its entirety, as well as the additional documentation that addresses the deficiencies described in the previously issued rejection notice/letter. Submission of Offers similar to previously rejected Offers must include, in detail, all items identified in the rejection letter/notice as deficiencies and what actions were taken to remedy those deficiencies. The Offeror shall provide a copy of any rejection notice(s)/letter(s) the company has received, within the preceding two (2) years, from any previous GSA IT Schedule 70 offer. Acceptance and satisfactory completion or mitigation of these deficiencies is at the sole discretion of the Contracting Officer.&nbsp;</p><div>&nbsp;</div>

<p>Debra, Thanks for the comment. GSA will be responding.</p>

<p>After viewing the Q &amp; A, it is disappointing to read that there are additional requirements to fufill if you have had a prior GSA IT-70 schedule cancelled dut to low sales.&nbsp; During the GSA-DHA Industry Day I spoke with three separate GSA contracting officers, none of whom mentioned there would be additional requirements, and all of whom stated that after submission of a new Health IT SIN offer, it would only take 30 days to get reviewed and on schedule</p>
