You need to complete the Pathways to Success training and the Readiness Assessment training, which are both web-based courses that help you understand the Multiple Award Schedules program. These courses also help you identify the contract that provides the best fit for your company and help you understand what it takes to be successful in this program.
PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS TRAINING
This course will explain how GSA’s Multiple Award Schedule contracts work, how to be successful as a vendor, what is required of you, and additional details about the offer process. It will also describe some alternative contracting opportunities for you. You will navigate through chapters, completing quizzes along the way.
READINESS ASSESSMENT TRAINING
The Readiness Assessment course helps ensure you’re ready to submit an offer for the right Multiple Award Schedule contract. It also helps you identify the right Special Item Numbers (SINs), which are categories we use to describe specific products and services. You’ll also use online GSA data sources to identify other companies that provide similar products and services to see if you can compete with them. This assessment is important because you need to maintain a minimum level of sales ($25,000 within the first two years of your contract, and each year after that) to stay on Schedule 70.
