There are several similarities and differences from working with Federal organizations. Whether you are a GSA MAS Contract holder or considering selling through a partner’s existing GSA Schedule Contract, you may ask yourself, “Can I sell to state and local governments through my GSA Schedule?”

Who can Purchase from my GSA MAS Contract?

mas purchaseMultiple Award Schedule (MAS) contracts through the General Services Administration are a great way to sell to the government. The question often arises of who exactly can purchase from these contracts.

Every department and agency that falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal government is eligible to purchase off GSA Schedule contracts. The GSA Schedule program was mainly designed for use by federal government organizations but other organizations have access too.

There are 3 comprehensive appendices listing the organizations that qualify as authorized users, meaning they may purchase off of GSA Schedules. Appendix A lists executive agencies, such as cabinet departments, wholly owned government corporations and other independent establishments in the executive branch. Appendix B lists eligible federal organizations that are not part of the executive branch, as well as other mixed-ownership government corporations and non-state US territories such as the District of Columbia and Guam. Appendix C lists international organizations that are eligible to use GSA Schedules, such as the Red Cross and International Monetary Fund.

State and local governments are also capable of purchasing off GSA Schedules. State and local organizations are not formally listed under any of the appendices but do have conditional access to GSA Schedules. States may purchase off of Schedule 70 and Schedule 84 as part of the Cooperative Purchasing Program. States may also use the Disaster Recovery Purchase Program to buy off GSA Schedules. Some states may have alternate contracting vehicles in place that they use instead of GSA Schedules.
