Working with a GSA Schedule Consultant
Why You Should Work with a GSA Schedule Consultant
A GSA Schedule Contract opens doors into the Federal market. Agencies facing increasingly complex challenges are continually turning to private industry for guidance in order to achieve their missions. GSA’s Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program represents the government’s most widely used contract vehicle with over $38 Billion in Federal sales in fiscal year 2011. The vehicle helps simplify the procurement process and enables Federal customers to make purchases quickly and easily – helping agencies meet their mandates, save taxpayer money, and better serve the American people. A GSA Schedule consultant can help your company obtain a GSA Schedule contract.
GSA Schedule Contract assistance is an approach that makes sense. While having a contract in place with the Federal government can certainly help build your organization’s brand by giving you a ‘GSA preferred vendor’ status and expand your company’s potential for business growth, obtaining a GSA Schedule can be a daunting task. Organizations wishing to sell to agencies must be carefully assessed by the Federal government in order to be considered a candidate. This evaluation includes a thorough review of your company’s core competencies, financial capacity, past performance and discounting/pricing practices. A GSA Application evaluation can be a demanding and time intensive process. An experienced consultant’s insight while completing the GSA Application process will help you accelerate the process in gaining entry into the public sector market.
