Special Order Program

The GSA Global Supply Special Order Program (SOP) provides complete, full-service acquisition management support to help you acquire the products you need most. We simplify the entire acquisition process, from proposal preparation through contract award, allowing you to focus on your mission. You can be sure our comprehensive service complies with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and other applicable regulations. You have the flexibility to use the funding mechanism that works best for you—MILSTRIP or a Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (MIPR).

New Order Acceptance Criteria

Effective August 1, 2015, GSA's Southwest Supply and Acquisition Center in Fort Worth, TX, revised its policy and no longer accepts "offline" orders with a Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) valued below $3,500. For details on the scope of this change, and definition of "offline" orders, see Revised Order Acceptance Criteria [PDF - 320 KB]. Effective February 1, 2016, the Southwest Supply and Acquisition Center will not accept any customer order for items lacking GSA Global Supply contract coverage if the COGS is below $3,500. For details on the new criteria, please see  Revised Acceptance Criteria as of February 1, 2016 [PDF - 307 KB].
