Using Contractor Team Arrangement for doing business with GSA

Hello everyone. As part of my continuing learning portion of my individual development plan, I took some online training on using GSA’s FAS schedule. One of the things I learned is the use of a Contractor Team Arrangements (CTA). Under a CTA, two or more GSA Schedule contractors work together to meet ordering activity needs. By complementing each other's capabilities, the team offers a total solution to the ordering activity’s requirement, providing a "win-win" situation for all parties.

Do All Team Members of a CTA Have To Be Small Businesses When Using a Small Business Set Aside?


Why do all members of the CTA have to be small businesses if an agency uses a small business set aside for their requirement?

It seems that Brad and I are receiving quite a few calls on this subject lately. I guess that is to be expected with the inception of discretionary set asides for the GSA schedules program as of November 2011.  Currently, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is working on developing policies in reference to set asides.
