U.S. GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTATION
Under GSA Schedules (also referred to as Multiple Award Schedules and Federal Supply Schedules) Program, GSA establishes long-term governmentwide contracts with commercial firms to provide access to over 11 million commercial supplies (products) and services. While GSA Schedules Program is only one of GSA’s procurement vehicles, it is one of the largest programs and the most preferred for commercial products and services.
The Schedules Program was designed to provide discount resources to all GSA federal agencies worldwide, as well as state and local governments. Under this program, a contract holder can sell to any government agency with just one source, instead of having separate contracts with each agency.
Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ)
GSA has awarded several Multiple Award IDIQ contracts to procure technical expertise in areas such as cost estimating, architect/engineer services, seismic/structural/blast services, construction management and inspection, general construction, repair and alteration, design-build, demolition and remediation services.
Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)
A GSA Schedule BPA is an agreement established by a customer with a GSA Schedule contractor to fill repetitive needs for supplies or services (FAR 8.405-3). It simplifies the process for recurring needs, while leveraging a customer’s buying power by taking advantage of quantity discounts, saving administrative time, and reducing paperwork.
Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs)
GSA is also authorized to establish task and delivery order contracts for information technology for use by other agencies. These GWACs have unique contracting features and specialized benefits for GSA customers.
