Janitorial and Sanitation Supplies (JanSan)

The Janitorial and Sanitation (JanSan) Purchase Channel has been running since October 2015. Federal agencies may place orders directly with JanSan Purchase Channel contractors and receive BPA pricing (see the JanSan Quick Guide [DOCX - 139 KB] for online store information).

All BPA holders are available in GSA Advantage!®. It is easy to find specific products by searching directly for JanSan products. Results will give only items that are loaded on JanSan BPAs. Use the dropdown menu in the search bar to search for only Janitorial and Sanitation Supplies.

GSA has 15 blanket purchase agreements for this strategic sourcing solution, which is designed to help federal agencies purchase Janitorial and Sanitation supplies at significant savings—prices that are at least 15.9 percent lower than standard government pricing.

These awards represent a piece of the important role that GSA plays as America’s Buyer—helping federal agencies acquire commonly purchased items at prices that are representative of the volume of products purchased across the federal government. Consolidating purchasing under programs such as these saves taxpayer dollars and drives necessary spending on these types of products to our small business partners. This makes a real and positive impact for government agency budgets and improves the bottom line for selected small businesses and suppliers.

The total annual federal spend for these two product categories amounts to approximately $1.2 Billion, of which $599 Million is on products that would be available through the JanSan solution. Actual spend through JanSan in FY15 was $11 Million, which resulted in $3.3 Million in savings. GSA expects that as the use of the JanSan solution increases, potential savings will also increase.

GSA has grouped JanSan products into four categories in an effort to streamline product catalogs and ensure lower prices.

  1. Cleaning Compounds and Related Dispensers (including disinfectants, degreasers, glass cleaners, laundry and dish detergents, bleach, hand soaps and sanitizers);
  2. Non-Motorized Cleaning Equipment and Trash Receptacles (including Brooms, mops, brushes, trash receptacles and bags);
  3. Paper Products and Related Dispensers (including Toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissues, seat liners); and
  4. Motorized Floor Cleaning Equipment and Accessories (including Vacuum cleaners, wet/dry vacs, floor buffers, polishers and burnishers).
