Prospective Schedule Contractors - Are Schedules a Good Fit for Me?
The GSA Multiple Award Schedule Program, also referred to as the “Schedule,”, is the premier contract vehicle for the federal government. The Schedule Program is a long term government-wide contract between commercial suppliers and the federal government.
Suppliers give federal, and in some cases state and local buyers (including tribal governments and some educational institutions), access to millions of commercial products and services at negotiated ceiling prices. Schedule purchases represent approximately 21 percent of overall federal procurement spending--approximately $42 billion per year.
Holding a Schedule contract can open doors for businesses, but it requires effort and commitment on your part to succeed.
