Point of Sale Transactional Data (PoST)

Man at counter handing over credit card

The PoST pilot initiative is a next step effort to provide better pricing and more information to Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) customers. The Office of General Supplies and Services, in conjunction with the Office of Charge Card Management and the Office of Acquisition Management, has developed and rolled out a pilot across three Multiple Award Schedules. It incorporates point of sale discounts and transactional data requirements into new MAS awards.  

The pilot applies to the following Schedules and SINs:

The PoST pilot program includes two components that bring value to GSA’s customers by participating schedule vendors:

  • Provide customers with Level-3 transactional data on all orders placed with the GSA SmartPay Card. 
  • Provide GSA SmartPay card holders with a point of sale discount equal to or better than the vendor’s schedule price on all purchases through all ordering channels, including mail order, telephone order, email, vendor commercial websites and retail sales in physical storefronts, unless the customer specifies the use of another contracting vehicle. 

The Level-3 data, along with the point of sale discount, will enable customers to automatically obtain schedule pricing and more data on their purchases.

Currently, there are some vendors who are voluntarily providing point of sale discounts and level-3 data to customers. The PoST pilot will standardize this practice for the vendors who participate in the pilot. Both of the PoST components are in demand by federal customers, and participating vendors may experience increased interest from customers who want either or both of the components of the PoST pilot.
