GSA MAS Consolidation – Aug 2019

  • Why Consolidate all schedules?
    • Consistency – Not enough uniformity across all GSA Schedules
    • Redundancy –
  • PHASE 1 –
    • GSA Downloaded all Terms & Conditions
      • Analyzed them all (duplicates, obsolete, not pertinent, etc.)
      • Work to refresh them
    • Map Special Item Numbers (SIN’s)
      • New numbering system, NAICS Codes
      • Only one size standard per SIN (because it is based on NAICS)
      • Mapping to Category Management structure
      • Will be >300 SINs in new Schedule
    • Important dates: New Solicitation will be released Oct 1.
      • After Oct 1st, eOffer will change
      • Everything will be deleted unless it is submitted before Sep. 30
      • After Oct. 1, you can apply but it will be under the new Schedule (No Freeze)
      • Modifications will not be effected by this project.
      • Jan 2020 – Mass Mod will go to all current GSA Contractors.
        • Clean Terms & Conditions
        • Contract Requirement to accept this Mass Mod
        • All old Mass Mods will be deleted.
        • Will map your old SINs to the new SIN Structure
        • Same Contract numbers will remain (because changing them would interfere with BPA’s)
        • All GSA negotiated factors will be unchanged
      • eLibrary will change – All SIN’s applicable will show.
      • Full Modification Process will be unchanged, and is still required to add, delete, price change, etc.
    • PHASE 2 –
      • If you only have one GSA Contract, nothing is needed.
      • If you have multiple GSA Contracts:
        • A team at GSA will be assembled to assist with this. All CO’s will be involved with planning the solution to consolidate your contracts to only one.
        • A primary contract will be selected
        • Modifications will be completed to move everything to the one GSA Contract.
        • This will take years to complete
