IT Commodities

GSA AdvantageSelect is a game-changing initiative for federal buyers: a money-saving program that makes shopping for select pre-competed IT commodities easier and faster. It establishes FAR-compliant, pre-competed, contractual vehicles, so buying a commodity is now as easy as click and pay.

Federal agencies can buy IT commodities such as laptops, servers, and integrated support services faster and at lower prices through GSA. Users saved 15-37 percent when they used the IT Commodity Buy BPA (compared to ordering off multiple award schedules). Contact our IT commodity team for acquisition assistance.

IT Commodities

The IT commodity program streamlines your operations and reduces overall contracting costs by aggregating the government's demand for IT. By streamlining the modification process, new products can be added in as little as 24 to 48 hours.

The IT commodity program can take advantage of your reverse auction system to bid down the price of IT commodities. The blanket purchase agreements (BPAs) also feature automatic tiered volume discounts, additional customer-negotiated discounts, and the ability for vendors to provide discounts on the spot.

Additional support includes maintenance, warranties, installation, integration, and product training.

When you use the IT commodity program, you get quarterly usage reports and Level III data, as well as monthly performance metrics reports and customer surveys.

The IT commodity program also meets the requirements of sustainable purchasing, such as eWaste credits and rebates and lifecycle management. Some products are Energy Star and EPEAT-certified.
