Office Management Products and Services

GSA provides federal agencies with a variety of office management solutions that support the fully functional workplace, reduce operational costs, and free up resources so agencies can focus on core mission activities.

Multiple Award Schedule (MAS)

Through GSA’s Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program, you have access to long-term, governmentwide contracts that provide easy access to more than 25 million commercial products and services at volume-discount pricing. Because of established contractor relationships and the streamlined ordering procedures found in FAR Subpart 8.4, the GSA Schedule offers shorter procurement lead times and lower administrative costs than establishing a new contract. All of the Office Management MAS subcategories can be found on the Office Management Category page, along with helpful guidance and resources for both buyers and industry.
