As a GSA Schedule Contractor, Must I Accept an Order from a Buyer?

GSA Schedule contractor questionThe answer to this question depends on the context of the order. As a GSA Schedule Contractor, there are times when it is obligatory to accept orders from buyers, and other times when it is not. Accepting an order from a buyer depends on the size of the order and who placed it.

GSA contractors are obligated to fill an order from an executive agency that is below the Maximum Order threshold. In regards to orders over the Maximum threshold, agencies often expect a price break because of the large volume of the sale. Contractors are not required to give deeper discounts for orders above the Maximum threshold, but should be wary of what the competition is pricing at to avoid losing contract awards. The Maximum Order threshold is determined on a schedule by schedule and sometimes a SIN by SIN basis. For orders outside of the executive branch, it is highly encouraged that contractors accept orders, but in this case they are not obligated to do so. In addition, GSA contractors are obligated to accept government purchase card orders within the micro-purchase threshold, under $2,500. This is outlined in GSA’s Terms and Conditions of each awarded GSA Schedule Contract.

Be sure to keep these policies in mind when applying for a GSA Schedule, as it is necessary to have the appropriate resources and staff to fill any obligatory orders placed. Through the GSA Schedule application process, the GSA will make sure that contractors applying have the appropriate resources and experience to meet the potential needs of federal agencies before they award the contract.
