GSA Contracting Programs for HBCU, HSI and TCU (2/23/2022)
Target Audience: Procurement and Purchasing Agents of HBCU, HSI and TCU
Leveraging the Federal Government’s buying power through GSA’s Multiple Award Schedule (MAS), also known as the “Federal Supply Schedule” is a procurement option often overlooked by public institutions of higher learning. GSA offers several programs which eligible institutions can access to maximize their procurement dollars. GSA’s Cooperative Purchasing Program (COOP) offers access to pre-certified, highly secure IT products and services. GSA Disaster Purchasing (preparation, response, recovery) offers access to the Federal government’s certified emergency preparedness, response and recovery marketplace and vendors. GSAXcess® offers surplus Federal property for eligible organizations.
GSA recognizes the value that institutions such as HBCU, HSI, and TCU provide to our nation and we seek to ensure these institutions have equal access to GSA contracting programs to purchase products and services. Advancing the interest of these organizations has a direct impact on our efforts to ensure equity and support underserved communities. For this reason, we are conducting a special webinar for HBCU, HSI, and TCUs to share information on how they can access and maximize their purchasing opportunities at GSA. This comprehensive training course will include Cooperative Purchasing contracting and ordering procedures (IT related categories), Disaster and Security services and products, and a brief overview of GSAXcess®-the gateway to obtaining surplus Federal property. This is a one (1.0) CLP credit event.
