Overview

GSA is the U.S. General Services Administration, a federal agency.  Under the GSA Schedule program, GSA's Federal Acquisition Service negotiates contracts which authorized buyers order from at pre‐negotiated prices and terms.

A U.S. Government buyer has a wide array of contract types available for the purchase of goods and services. This includes sealed bidding, set‐asides, negotiated procurements, and "other than full and open competition", frequently known as sole source. However, one of the easiest procedures for a federal buyer to use is the GSA multiple award schedule. Since it is pre‐negotiated, a GSA Schedule allows a buyer to conduct a competition more efficiently and expeditiously than through any other competitive procedures. GSA Schedules are also based on a company's commercial sales and discounting practices, making them the most "commercial‐like" of any government contracts.

Who Can Order?

All federal government agencies, quasi‐federal agencies, and government contractors purchasing in support of government funded projects.
