To transform federal buildings into higher performing, greener buildings, the General Services Administration (GSA) announced that it awarded construction projects to more than 500 companies creating jobs in all 50 states, 2 territories, and the District of Columbia by investing $4 billion in Recovery Act funds.
This means there are, and will be, more projects relating to several GSA Schedules:
- Schedule 56 – Buildings and Building Materials/Industrial Services and Supplies
- Schedule 03FAC – Facilities Maintenance and Management
- Schedule 51 V – Hardware SuperStore
“GSA’s aggressive Recovery Act obligations put people back to work across the country and leverage our buying power to invest in green jobs, energy efficient technologies, and both traditional construction and emerging green markets,” said Martha Johnson, Administrator of General Services. “By creating a greener, higher performing federal buildings portfolio, GSA’s Recovery Act investments will save taxpayer dollars in energy efficiencies and build a more sustainable economy.”
The GSA manages 8,600 government-owned or leased buildings from many different federal agencies, and this $4 billion effort to retrofit and improve energy efficiency has created many contracting and subcontracting opportunities.
How Do I Get Involved?
Only a GSA Contract holding company can work under a prime contractor that has been processed through the GSA channel. Therefore, you will need to acquire your GSA Contract, fast. In the vast majority of cases, a company that submits an in-house GSA Contract completed by an employee will be rejected, and ultimately never get their GSA Contract. On the other hand, a company using an experienced specialist will acquire their GSA Contract quickly and get involved in federal projects much sooner.
