GSA's PSS is a Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract under the GSA Schedule Program. It is the major procurement vehicle for Professional Services among Federal Agencies. This type of contract is called an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), which means that there are no PO's attached to the award, but it is rather a channel for sales to flow through (i.e. a License to hunt).
