Special Order Program

The GSA Global Supply Special Order Program 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 and other applicable regulations. You have the flexibility to use the funding mechanism that works best for you—Military Standard Requisitioning and Issue Procedures or a Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request.


Our Special Order Program offers streamlined access to:

  • Law-enforcement, safety and security products;
  • Maintenance, repair and operations supplies;
  • Construction materials, tools, equipment and appliances;
  • Products that support wildland-firefighting and disaster-relief efforts;
  • Office supplies and equipment;
  • Housewares and cleaning equipment; and
  • Much, much more.

Our certified contract, project and financial-management professionals will expertly navigate the range of procurement vehicles to help you obtain the products you need most – delivered to you anywhere in the world.
