Shipboard Cleaners

GSA Global Supply® has partnered with the U.S. Navy to develop a flyer highlighting approved cleaning products and dispensers intended for use onboard Navy vessels. The program features a variety of National Stock Numbers (NSNs), each with a Commercial Item Description (CID), for multiple categories of cleaning supplies. Awards are made competitively, in accordance with FAR and GSA Acquisition Manual (GSAM) regulations. Learn more about the categories and NSNs in the Standardization of Shipboard Cleaners flyer [PDF - 305 KB]. For ordering information, please visit GSA Global Supply Easy Ordering Options.
