Currently, the U.S. is dealing with the destruction caused by Hurricane Laura while Hurricane Sally makes landfall in the Gulf of Mexico. As the states attempt to recover and rebuild after these devastating storms, the country is also working to stay ahead of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, causing government spending to rise on federal, state, and local levels. In order to acquire the goods and services that are necessary to rebuild in a quick and efficient manner, many government agencies are purchasing items from commercial businesses through the General Services Administration (GSA) Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program. This program is an essential part of ensuring the government’s response to disasters is successful, cost-effective, and timely.
Whether you’re a new GSA Schedule contractor or have been selling to the federal government for years, it’s important for you to be aware of the regulations you must follow so you can remain GSA compliant. As laws and regulations often change in the government, we are constantly informing our clients of important policy changes and helping them understand how they affect their business. One of the most recent changes was the amendment to Section 889 Federal Acquisitions Regulation (FAR) Rule.
