GovConChat™: Big Changes Coming to the GSA Schedule for Professional Services. What’s It All About and Are You Ready?

Big Changes Coming to the GSA Schedule for Professional Services.
What’s It All About and Are You Ready?

20537555_l dont knowDoes your company have a GSA Schedule for professional services? More than one? Have you heard about Podcast logothe changes coming to the Federal Supply Schedule program? How familiar are you with how these changes may help or hurt your company when it comes to government contracting?

In an effort to streamline the purchasing of services from MAS Schedules, GSA has officially Gsa_sealannounced the movement of all professional services on the various individual GSA Schedules to one single Professional Services Schedule (PSS).  The Schedule contracts to be merged are The Consolidated (00CORP), MOBIS (874), PES (871), FABS (520), AIMS (541), LOGWORLD (874V), Environmental (899) and Language (738II).  Going forward, with the exception of the Consolidated (00CORP) Schedule, the individual professional services schedules listed above will be migrated into the new Professional Services Schedule and the individual solicitations for those schedules cited above will be eliminated.

During this edition of GovConChat™ I talk with my friend Courtney Fairchild of Global Services to get answers to the following questions and more

  1. Why the change to one Professional Services Schedule?
  2. What are the possible drawbacks of one Professional Services Schedule to Government? Industry?
  3. What will happen for companies that currently hold multiple individual GSA Services Schedule contracts?
  4. How will the change impact small business schedule holders?
  5. What about companies facing termination because they have not met the sales minimum?
  6. What is the timeline for the proposed switch to the new Schedule?
