Small Businesses Need Multiple Award Contracts

Small businesses will perish in the federal market without a Multiple Award Contract (MAC).

The Federal Government is rapidly changing how they buy products and services from "one winner" RFPs into "many winner" Multiple Award Contracts (MACs). A MAC contract allows the government to pre-qualify several companies (winners) based on experience and pricing and then compete individual task orders among the winners. Most MACs have provisions for small business to be among the winners and then task orders are competed among the MAC winning small businesses.

In most cases small businesses with set-aside certifications can receive preference among the small business competition for task orders.

The accelerating trend toward the use of MACs helps to reduce the purchasing paperwork burden on understaffed contracting offices.

GSA schedules are the most popular and accessible MACs for companies new to the federal marketplace.
The beauty of GSA schedules for small businesses are as follows: 

  • Always open for bid
  • Purchasing preference for small businesses with set-aside certifications
  • No project size requirements for qualifying the experience of small businesses
  • Can be used by any federal agency in making a purchase
