What Are The Benefits Of A GSA Schedule

All federal agencies use the GSA schedule to fulfill their needs for good and services.  They are not obligated to do so but the use of a GSA schedule helps the government as well as the business owner.  The use of this program works for everybody involved; it supplies the end user with the product or service, while paying the contractor for supplying the product or service.  Although there can be more changes to make this program run a little smoother GSA has created the federal schedule program into a one stop shop for all federal agencies.

The whole process allows the business owner the ability to close a federal deal while staying in compliance with federal rules and regulations.  Some advantages of having the GSA schedule are:

  1. You can sell to any government agency when you have a GSA schedule.
  2. There is a short lead time in making a sale.
  3. GSA schedules are streamlined, fast, effective procurements.
  4. The program is flexible and easy to use.
  5. GSA schedules are pre-negotiated, pre-priced contracts that provide cost savings.
  6. GSA schedule holders have a competitive advantage over non schedule holders.
  7. Easier access to teaming arrangements that you are in control of.

GSA schedules are a good way to get your foot in the door but before you attempt to apply to the program you need to do your market research and find out if its a good fit for you.
