How the GSA Purchases

GSA uses a variety of contracting vehicles to effectively manage procurement for both its own operations and its government customers.

1) GSA Schedules

GSA Schedules are also known as Multiple Award Schedules (MAS). In a GSA Contract there is a long-term federal contract established with contractors for their products and/or services. GSA Schedules are the most preferred for commercial products and services.

More Info:  www.gsa.gov/schedules.

2) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)

A GSA Schedule BPA is an agreement between a federal agency and a contractor with a GSA Schedule to fulfill reoccurring requirements for supplies or services. A BPA is great for all involved, the government takes advantage of quantity discounts and GSA Contractors enjoy a steady flow of business. The cut-down in paperwork is also great for all involved.

More Info: www.gsa.gov/bpa.

3) Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs)

“GSA is also authorized to establish task orders or delivery order contracts for information technology for use by other agencies. These GWACs have unique contracting features and specialized benefits for GSA customers.” From GSA Website

4) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ)

GSA Multiple Award IDIQ contracts are used to procure technical expertise in special areas.
