GSA Multiple-Award Schedules are fast, easy, and effective contracting vehicles for both customers and vendors. Through the Schedule program, GSA has established long-term Government-wide contracts with commercial companies to provide access to millions of commercial products and services at volume discount pricing. Civilian and Defense Federal agencies can contract with pre-approved vendors and benefit from "most-favored customer" pricing with GSA.
On October 1, GSA consolidated seven disparate schedules into a single Professional Services Schedule (PSS). Schedules that are transitioning to the PSS include:
- MOBIS Schedule 874
- PEI Schedule 871
- FABS Schedule 520
- AIMS Schedule 541
- LOGWORLD Schedule 874V
- Environmental Schedule 899
- Language Schedule 738 II
These schedules include advertising, marketing, business consulting, environmental solutions, financial and business solutions, language services, logistics and professional engineering.
Currently there are 5,000 professional service contracts with 4,500 vendors. After consolidation, there will be 3,100 contracts and the same number of vendors. This consolidation is good for vendors who had contracts under multiple schedules. Those vendors should be able to reduce their administrative costs associated with having multiple contracts. It is also good for the Government buyers who now have a single schedule to consult when procuring professional services.
