Sell Through the Professional Services Schedule
GSA is committed to working closely with industry to make sure that the best they have to offer is available to the government through the Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) Program. The Schedules are long-term, governmentwide contracts with commercial companies to provide access to millions of commercial products and services at volume discount pricing. The Professional Services Schedule (PSS) is a fast, easy, and effective contracting vehicle providing direct access to simple or complex fixed-price or labor-hour professional services. Below is a list of resources to assist vendors in getting a PSS contract and achieving and sustaining success as a PSS contract holder.
GSA continually updates the offerings under the GSA Schedules program and aids industry partners in being successful in the government marketplace. Industry partners should be prepared to take necessary steps to be productive in a highly competitive marketplace. Having a GSA Schedule contract is a significant investment requiring careful analysis, planning and commitment. GSA has created a “MAS Roadmap” to help new offerors understand how to submit an offer to sell commercial products and services. Vendors are encouraged to review the PSS solicitation in Federal Business Opportunities and the PSS SIN Table [PDF - 224 KB] to determine if your services are the right fit for the PSS.

Marketing Your Contract
Preparing an offer is not the only time there are administrative tasks to complete. New GSA Schedule contractors must also complete important contract administration tasks when building a customer base. They include:
- Registering with the Vendor Support Center for training, publications, and resources for helping contractors achieve success. Begin with the "New Contractor Orientation Webcast" and “Steps to Success” Guide , found on the Vendor Support Center publications tab. Refer to the Training for Vendors page and to Events for Vendors with Government Contracts.
- Creating, distributing, and maintaining your company price list. Within six months of contract award, new contractors must upload their current approved price list to GSAAdvantage!®, GSA’s online shopping and ordering system.
