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 simplified 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—Military Standard Requisitioning and Issue Procedures (MILSTRIP) or a Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (MIPR).

New Order Acceptance Criteria

Effective January 1, 2017, GSA Global Supply is changing order acceptance criteria for products without standing GSA Global Supply contract coverage. For details on the new criteria, please see Revised Order Acceptance Criteria as of January 1, 2017 [PDF - 65 KB] .

Fee Notice

Effective February 1, 2017, GSA Global Supply will increase the fees for conducting acquisitions for products without a standing GSA Global Supply contract for orders valued under $3,500 (cost of goods before fee applied). For orders valued from $0 - $500 (cost of goods before fee applied), the fee will increase to 50 percent. For orders valued from $500 to $3,500 (cost of goods before fee applied), the fee will increase to 40 percent. These increases are necessary in order to allow GSA Global Supply to continue to provide acquisition support for this segment of customer orders.
