Roadmap to get a MAS contract
Decide if getting a Multiple Award Schedule contract is in your best interest
Take the mandatory pathways to success [PDF - 2 MB] training. It takes 3-4 hours. You must acknowledge in the eOffer system that you completed this training within the past year when you submit your offer.
- Government contracting officers may set aside orders and blanket purchase agreements in these socioeconomic categories when their market research shows that at least three firms are capable of providing the products and services.
Our Startup Springboard program helps new companies without two years of corporate experience to possibly substitute:
Other documentation to demonstrate financial responsibility if you don't have two years of financial statements.
Company executives and key professionals' management and project experience, or other additional info that demonstrates your ability to manage a company and provide the services and products.
Do a readiness assessment
A designated Authorized Negotiator who is also an employee of the company must complete the readiness assessment. You will acknowledge in eOffer that this was done within the past year when you submit your offer.
Read the entire MAS solicitation
The solicitation and category attachments are our formal request for contractors to submit offers. It will detail the required elements of an offer, what evaluation criteria we use to evaluate whether or not to award a MAS contract to your company, and the specific terms and conditions you will need to comply with.
Review the new offeror checklist
Our new offeror checklist [XLSX - 857 KB] summarizes the minimum requirements for your submission. Use the category-specific tabs to make sure you don't miss anything. A contracting officer also might need additional information as they review your proposal.
Complete required registrations
If you haven't already, take care of these requirements:
- Register in the System for Award Management, or SAM. Use the SAM entity registration checklist for detailed instructions.
- Get a unique entity identifier, or UEI, which is required to do business with us. You'll get it as part of the registration process at SAM.gov.
- Register for eOffer, which you'll use to submit your offer and accept modifications. You'll get a FAS ID as part of the registration process. To get a FAS ID, you need to make sure you are listed in SAM as a government business POC, electronic business POC, past performance POC, or alternates of them. Use the FAS ID help guide if you need to.
Gather the required info for your offer
You will need to use our templates for some forms, and you will need to compile information to input into required fields in eOffer. Since some fields have character limits, you might want to prepare your information in another application, and then paste it into the system. You should also look up your SINs in our table to see what SIN-specific requirements exist.
Finalize and submit your offer
Log into eOffer using your FAS ID and then complete the information, upload forms, sign, and submit your completed offer. The eOffer/eMod help center has a knowledge base with a table of contents and search to find help for whatever you need.
If you need more info or help, use our National Customer Service Center.
