New consolidated Schedule solicitation makes it easier for customers to find and purchase solutions they need to meet their missions
WASHINGTON – The U.S. General Services Administration today released its consolidated Schedule solicitation on Fed Biz Opps. The new solicitation modernizes federal acquisition by consolidating and streamlining the existing 24 Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) into a single Schedule for products, services, and solutions.
At this time, only new contracts will be placed on the consolidated Schedule solicitation, which streamlines and simplifies the order process for new contractors. Contractors already on Schedule will not be affected by the new solicitation until the mass modification takes effect in calendar year 2020. Federal agencies should see no disruptions to their purchasing practices during the transition.
