Quality Partnership Council

The Quality Partnership Council (QPC) is the GSA Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center’s (IWAC) Supplier and Industry Engagement Forum. QPC exists to foster a common understanding between customer, contractor, and GSA. Council communication, education and collaborative efforts are focused on continuous improvement of processes, policies, and service to customers and each other.

Communication

Members are encouraged to communicate with the board members [PDF - 210 KB] who represent their Schedule and to attend QPC meetings, industry days, and educational webinars.

Multiple Award Schedule contract holders under the Furniture and Furnishings Category are invited to join the GSA Furniture LinkedIn Group. This group is an added resource to keep suppliers informed. It enhances communication and does not replace the emails currently received from GSA. The GSA Furniture Team will communicate through this LinkedIn Group all Furniture and Furnishings Category general updates, news, QPC meeting invitations, and more! Membership is limited to GSA employees, federal furniture buyers, and industry partners under the Furniture and Furnishings Category.

Members may cancel membership at any time. Simply email your request to be removed from the QPC to qpc@gsa.gov. Cancelling your membership does not affect communication between your organization and GSA or any IWAC acquisition professional.

Event Resources

QPC events and meetings are held, as necessary, to discuss issues impacting the federal community and GSA’s furniture & furnishings category industry partners, with the goal of having at least two general and/or sub-category specific meetings each year. Meeting dates, times, venue (virtual or in person), and agenda are determined by council member consensus and reflect member interests. QPC events are free to industry and agency partners.

Stay connected and receive updates on future events!
