Recent Trends Discovered While Surfing FedBizOpps

In contrast to how things were handled in the past, recent publicly-announced bids found at FedBizOpps are either specifically stating that GSA schedule pricing is "preferred" or that only GSA Schedule holders will be considered. 

Examples are:

In many cases, it is unclear if the award will be an official GSA order, particularly when the Request for Proposal (RFP) is vague about how the GSA pricing will be used and whether or not it is strict requirement for bidding. State and local agencies have been posting bids for a while now asking for GSA Schedule pricing. But, when the actual paperwork comes through, the opportunity is not run through a Schedule contract. It's conceivable that this practice is creeping into the federal market as well. 

Regardless of whether or not this recent trend will become an established practice, a large portion of government purchases are made via GSA Schedule contracts.  Become a GSA Schedule contractor and position your company to succeed in winning long term, government-wide contracts.
