General Services Administration (GSA) Update

Direct your clients to GSA’s MAS Roadmap

GSA’s website is full of information about the contract award process, but interviews with vendors tell us many find the Federal Acquisition Service’s (FAS) pages jargon-heavy and hard to navigate, with information not appearing where it would be most useful. Many also say they find the process of getting on the Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) very confusing. This is an obvious barrier for companies trying to do business with the government, and seems to be hitting small and innovative ones especially hard.

But that’s all changing, thanks to GSA’s MAS Roadmap, a new website designed to make it easier for businesses of all sizes to get started doing business with the federal government. The roadmap is a new website that offers support to potential vendors and breaks down the offer
process into discrete, easy to follow step-by-step instructions.

Getting companies and emerging technologies onto Schedules and into the hands of customer agencies faster is a key goal of GSA’s plan to make it easier for industry partners to do business with the government, and the MAS Roadmap is a crucial part of making that happen. By making it easier and faster to get on Schedule, GSA is attempting to enable vendors to provide products and services at the speed of innovation, addressing the rapid pace and growth of the government’s needs.

Please encourage your clients to visit the new GSA MAS Roadmap today and begin their journey to get on the Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) Schedule.
