Contract Writing System as a Service (CWSS)

CWSS offers a turnkey contract writing and administration solution. The CWSS application is a shared service that can both be tailored to any federal agency’s contracting system and has the capability of being integrated into its existing financial and operational applications. Through the use of CWSS, agencies are provided a cloud-based SaaS that guides the contracting and program offices through the contract process from planning to requisition creation to solicitation publishing to award to eventual closeout. CWSS follows a workflow process methodology and provides real-time notifications of work in progress and metrics on actions progressing through lifecycle states, all while GSA handles ongoing operations and maintenance.

Other benefits of the CWSS offering include:

  • Tiered volume discounts available based on usage levels and enabled through the buying power of GSA.

  • Firm fixed price fee structure to configure, implement and build associated interfaces around customized business process workflows and integrations with individual agency financial system(s).

  • Firm-fixed price software-as-a service model, allowing for “pay-as-you go” for flexibility and scalability.

CWSS is available via license purchase as a shared service. CWSS is part of a strategic, government-wide movement to “buy-as-one”, leveraging greater economies and the full buying power of the federal government. CWSS also represents a step forward in streamlining and improving the contract execution, administration and management process. CWSS reduces costs, increases efficiency and effectiveness, and leverages a cloud-based solution that leads to greater standardization, improved tracking and overall greater simplification and heightened performance in the procurement planning, contract award, administration, management and close-out process.
