Making It Easier: FASt Lane

The FASt Lane program ensures our government customer agencies have quicker access to emerging technologies and new offerings. Vendors get shorter processing times.

Current eligible initiatives:

  • 2GIT - 2nd Generation IT BPAs;
  • DEOS - Defense Enterprise Office Solution;
  • CEOS - Civilian Enterprise Office Solution;
  • Other customer initiatives that may arise (may include contract modification initiatives); and
  • If a federal agency ordering activity requests in writing that vendors may participate in FASt Lane to support the agency’s current requirements. Vendors are required to add the attached document along with the eOffer package.

The process time frames after eOffer/eMod submission are:

  • Less than 48 hours for contract modifications; and
  • As quickly as 45 days for new offers.

Based on solicitation requirements, the assigned GSA contracting officer will review new offers or contract modifications and provide any necessary feedback.

To ensure a speedy process, applying suppliers must be prepared to respond quickly to any inquiries from GSA contracting officers.

Send questions to the FASt Lane mailbox.
