Janitorial and Sanitation Supplies (JanSan)

A Best in Class Solution

The Janitorial and Sanitation (JanSan) Purchase Channel has been running since October 2015. GSA has 18 blanket purchase agreements (BPA) for this strategic sourcing solution. It is designed to help federal agencies purchase Janitorial and Sanitation supplies at significant cost avoidance—prices that are at least 26 percent lower than standard government pricing. Additional service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB) have been added.

These awards represent a piece of the important role that GSA plays as America’s Buyer. They help federal agencies acquire commonly purchased items at prices that are representative of the volume of products purchased across the federal government. Consolidating purchasing under programs such as these saves taxpayer dollars and drives necessary spending to our small business partners. This makes a real and positive impact for government agency budgets and improves the bottom line for selected small businesses and suppliers.

The total annual federal spend for JanSan these two product categories amounts to approximately $1.2 Billion, of which $599 Million is on products that would be available through the JanSan solution. Actual spend through JanSan in FY17 was $13 Million, which resulted in $4.7 Million in cost avoidance. GSA expects that as the use of the JanSan solution increases, potential savings will also increase.
