Professional Services Schedule (PSS)

The Professional Services Schedule (PSS) is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award schedule, providing direct access to simple or complex fixed-price or labor-hour professional services including:

Using the streamlined procurement procedures in FAR Subpart 8.4 Federal Supply Schedules, PSS offers federal agencies access to more than 3,300 experienced contractors who provide a range of commercial professional services at discounted and competitive prices.

Why use the PSS?

PSS gives federal agencies the ability to use a single contract to procure simple to complex fixed-price or labor-hour professional services. When using PSS to buy professional services, agencies can:

  • Use simplified acquisition procedures to issue a Request for Quotation (RFQ) using either your agency's solicitation system or GSA's eBuy solicitation system, or issue an RFQ directly to contractors using your agency's procedures.
  • Allow unique Contractor Team Arrangements to bring a wide variety of industry partners to the negotiating table.
  • Customize terms and conditions in task orders - or through Blanket Purchase Agreements - to meet specific requirements.
  • Be assured that required FAR terms and conditions are incorporated into the contract.
  • Ensure adequate participation by small businesses, including setting aside RFQs for various socioeconomic subgroups.
  • Save time by using the streamlined procurement procedures of FAR Subpart 8.4.

Did you know GSA offers two contracts that can meet any simple or complex professional services requirement - the Professional Services Schedule and One Acquisition Solutions for Integrated Services (OASIS). Is the PSS or OASIS the right solution for your professional services requirements? Review the PSS/OASIS Fact Sheet [PDF - 451 KB] to help you understand the two contracts.
