Small Service Businesses Need a MAC to Grow

Most federal service contracts are now being awarded through Multiple Award Schedule (MAC) contracts to avoid the delays and piles of paperwork required for a public competition.

Except for GSA schedules, all of the large Government Wide MACS are for consulting and information technology (IT) services.  Alliant 2 SB, the last of the big Government Wide MACS for IT services, is open for proposals now. (Government wide MACs will not be opened for proposals for several years, except GSA schedules.)

The Professional Services (PSS) GSA schedule is a "special Government-wide MAC" that is always open for a bid and it allows small businesses without large federal service contracts to participate in the MAC market.

Federal buyers prefer to contract through a MAC because it is fast and efficient.
The PSS schedule covers most types of services including:

  • Financial services
  • Management consulting services
  • Training services
  • Advertising and marketing services
  • Language services
  • Professional engineering services
  • Logistical services
  • Environmental services

Call (888) 661-4094, Ext. 2, to arrange a complimentary telephone call with Richard White to discuss any aspect of GSA schedules.
