Get on GSA Schedule

The GSA Multiple Award Schedules Program, also referred to as “Schedules,” is the premier contract vehicle for government. Schedules are long-term governmentwide contracts between commercial suppliers and the government.

Suppliers give federal, and in some cases state and local buyers, access to millions of commercial products and services at negotiated ceiling prices. Schedule purchases represent approximately 21 percent of overall federal procurement spending--about $42 billion per year.

Holding a Schedule contract can open doors for businesses, but it requires effort and commitment on your part to succeed. Learn how to Get on GSA Schedule today.

Sell Through the Professional Services Schedule

The Professional Services Schedule (PSS) is a fast, easy, and effective contracting vehicle providing direct access to simple or complex fixed-price or labor-hour professional services. Below is a list of resources to assist vendors in getting a PSS contract and achieving and sustaining success as a PSS contract holder. Explore out these resources to learn how to get a PSS contract and succeed as a PSS contract holder.

Get on OASIS

Getting on OASIS is a competitive process called on-ramping. On-ramps can be conducted as necessary at GSA's discretion. The primary reasons to on-ramp would revolve around inadequate competition levels at the task order level, mergers and acquisitions that shrink the number of vendors, customer driven request for a more focused sub-pool, and/or OASIS small businesses outgrowing their small business size standard after the first option period. Learn more about types of on-ramps and how to Get on OASIS today.

Vendor Support Center

The Vendor Support Center (VSC) is the online source for vendors to research the federal market, report sales, and upload information to GSA Advantage!®. The VSC website contains a wealth of information to assist both potential and existing contractors in maximizing the success of their respective contracts. It’s the perfect starting point for researching the federal market, or gaining more information about any of GSA’s contracting vehicles.

To be successful under the GSA Schedules program, new vendors should be prepared to take necessary steps to be productive in a highly competitive marketplace - visit For Vendors - Getting on Schedule to learn more.

Small Business Resources

Contractor Teaming Arrangements

A GSA Schedule Contractor Team Arrangement (CTA) is an arrangement in which two or more GSA Schedule contractors team together to provide a total solution to meet a customer's needs. Under Schedule CTAs, contractors complement each other and it allows teams to compete for orders for which they may not qualify independently. GSA encourages the use of CTAs to meet buyer’s requirements. Visit the Contractor Teaming Arrangements resource page to learn more about how CTA can benefit your business.
