IT Schedule 70 Start Up Springboard Program

As updates are being made to GSA schedule 70 (General Purpose Commercial Information Technology Equipment, Software, And Services) the agency workforce has incorporated a new program in April of 2016 for IT businesses with less than two years of service.  The program IT Schedule 70 Start Up Springboard has slightly different requirements than the original GSA schedule 70 contract, such as:

    1. The Springboard does not require that you have 2 consistent years of business.

    2. You may utilize experience that you personally provided prior to company inception (experience must be related to the GSA schedule you are applying for.

    3. Individuals that work in the company may utilize work experience related to the specific SIN for which you apply.

The review process for the Spring Board Start Up Program is accelerated and will take only 45 days for GSA to determine if the contract may be awarded. As with all other GSA schedules the Spring Board Start Up Program is an open-ended opportunity which means the solicitation never closes, so you can apply at any time.

Why Slow Down When You Can Get In The FASt Lane

If you’ve dealt with GSA schedules you know that the process is not completed quickly.  Dependent upon which schedule you apply for it may take anywhere from three to nine months to get an award.  Keep in mind that’s if the contracting officer request minimal clarifications.

In the early part of this year GSA launched a new program called GSA FASt Lane.  The program is supposed to cut down on the approval time for proposal submissions and/or modifications.  New proposal submissions can be approved in less than 45 days, and modifications can be approved in as little as 2 days.  Unfortunately, the program only applies to specific GSA schedule 70 initiatives.  Here are a list of the initiatives that apply.

  • Health IT Solutions

  • Cybersecurity Solutions

  • Cloud Services

  • Agile Delivery Services

For companies that already have a GSA schedule 70 and want to add new products and services modifications can be processed in as little as 2 days under the following initiatives.

  • Army Contracting Command (AMCOM) Express

  • Agile Delivery Services Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)

  • DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) BPA

  • Government-wide Strategic Solutions for Laptops and Desktops

  • National IT Commodity Program

  • Navy SPAWAR Enterprise Agreement Project
