Quick tip of the month

Watch out for scams!

Remember that while government websites may have different bureaucratic hoops to jump through when processing renewals, they do not require financial compensation! Be on the lookout for emails saying they are from "" or "eLibrary" asking for you to pay for a renewal process. These emails will often times look like the real website but are charging a fee to renew your registration. Pay careful attention to your email and who it is really coming from. Always confirm these emails with a coworker, consultant, or IT professional before going through with any renewal process.

GSA's planned transformation of the MAS Program

In its effort to modernize the federal acquisition process, GSA recently announced that it plans to consolidate the agency's 24 Multiple Award Schedules into a single schedule for both products and services. GSA states that "under a single schedule for products and services will make it easier for customers to find and purchase the solutions they need to meet their respective missions."

Frequently asked questions

How do I know if a customer is a GSA eligible entity?

The General Services Administration has developed a list of agencies and organizations eligible to purchase supplies and services from the GSA Schedule. Entities not listed may not purchase through the Schedules Program. The document also provides guidelines regarding the eligibility requirements and may be reviewed here.

Can I add products or services to the GSA Schedule that have not been sold commercially?

While occasionally there are special cases, typically you cannot add products or services to the GSA Schedule if your business has not sold them commercially. Your GSA Price List should be based on your company's commercial sales practices. Adding services to the GSA Schedule almost always requires pricing support such as invoices.
