GSA has created another contracting tool within the MAS Program to help our customers acquire total solutions, specifically in regard to materials that are incidental to the primary purpose of the order. The FAR 51 deviation allows all GSA contractors to procure items from Schedules and/or the GSA Global Supply Program. This course will discuss how to take advantage of the new ordering flexibility; the purpose and benefits of the deviation; criteria for use; roles and responsibilities; and the process for authorization and order placement.

FAR 51 Deviation - A Tool to Help You Achieve a Total Solution

To better meet the needs of GSA’s customer agencies, a deviation to FAR Part 51.1 has been approved to expand the authority of contractors to use GSA sources of supply placed on a time-and-materials (T&M)/labor-hour (LH) basis. Federal Government contracting officers have been authorized to give all GSA contractors access to the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) and GSA Global Supply Programs when deemed appropriate for fulfillment of their agency requirements. Please note that the FSS Program is inclusive of those Schedules managed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
