Temporary staffing images

With only a day’s notice, GSA can provide proven, quality temporary associates – worldwide. GSA can assist in assessing the experts needed for all phases of improving and expediting temporary-support practices.


Temporary staff members can work a short time or up to 240 workdays. TAPS is 100 percent set aside for small businesses and includes contractors certified as 8(a), HUBZone, and Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), as well as contractors who are woman-owned (WO), veteran-owned (VO), and service-disabled-veteran-owned (SDVO).



GSA contractors can provide short- or long-term acquisition-management services as well as contract administration and close-out support. Note: Contractors may not perform activities considered to be inherently government functions, as defined by FAR 7.503 or the ordering agency.
