Best in Class
FAS Best-in-Class Designated Solutions
The Best-in-Class designation identifies government-wide contracts that satisfy key criteria defined by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Best-in-Class solutions are vetted, well-managed, and recommended — and in some cases required — for use. Interagency category teams have designated nearly 40 Best-in-Class contracts to reduce the amount of effort individual buyers spend finding and researching acquisition solutions. Widespread adoption of Best-in-Class solutions will:
- Maximize the government’s shared purchasing power, allowing agencies to leverage volume discounts.
- Help agencies operate more efficiently by reducing administrative costs and contract duplication.
- Expand sharing of government-wide buying data, leading to better-informed business decisions.
