GSA:GSA Schedules Promote Small Business

Several of the installments in this series emphasize that GSA schedules:

  • Are solicitations always open to receive proposals to be evaluated for a contract award.
  • Allow commercial and government experience as the primary evaluation factor in reviving an award.
  • Use your own pricing to negotiate contract prices.

These attributes of GSA schedules make them ideal contracts for small businesses and companies with no federal experience.

GSA recently added a new regulation to promote small business awards. Companies can now receive GSA Schedule Request for Quotes (RFQ) that are set-aside for small businesses in general and small businesses with Small Business Certifications, e.g. vet owned, women owned, HUB Zone, socially & economic disadvantaged.

Set-asides cut competition for an order even more than the already reduced completion of GSA schedules.
