Selecting the Right Labor Categories on Schedules

GSA's Professional Services Category monthly Office Hours are designed to address federal customer agency questions about professional services acquisition. Plus you’ll earn 1 CLP!

This Month's Topic: Selecting the Right Labor Categories on Schedules

This month learn how GSA professional services labor categories are established at the MAS contract level and how to evaluate them for task orders. During the session you will:

  • Learn how to ensure that you RFQ establishes clear expectations for the services that need to be performed and that the contractors proposed labor category descriptions match up to what they have awarded under their PSS schedule
  • Learn what the purpose of Minimum education/Experience is and how to ensure that the proposed labor categories meet those expectations
  • Learn about the GSA pricing methodology and what that means to a customer agency

Why is this topic important? GSA has negotiated prices and established labor categories with clear minimum education and experience requirements, it is a requirement that agencies only award services and labor categories that are already awarded under the schedule, if this isn't done, the services provided could be considered "open market."
