GSA Schedule Pricing
Once you understand the generalities of how the FAR addresses your GSA Schedule pricing limitations, you will be fine. Compliance is important, and if you are operating without a solid understanding of your commercial pricing limitations, then you are taking on great risk.
Basically, there is a small set of rules based on GSA Schedule pricing for four customer types:
- Federal (buying through GSA) – You must use Negotiated GSA Prices – or lower
- Federal not buying through GSA) – Use any price you choose – no limitations
- MFC / BOA – Use Disclosed MFC/BOA Prices – or higher
- All Others – Use commercial pricing as disclosed to GSA – You decide / no limitations
