Modernizing the Federal Supply Schedule Program: Order-Level Materials
The Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) of the General Services Administration (GSA) is seeking comments that can be used to assist in the development of processes and procedures for the inclusion of order- level materials under the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) program. Though the acquisition of order-level materials is allowed under multiple- award Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contracts, FAS has yet to develop a clear mechanism for the procurement of these items under the FSS program. FAS is now taking steps to bring the FSS program into parity with other multiple-award IDIQ contract vehicles. This endeavor is a critical piece of a larger effort to modernize the FSS program as a whole, under which FAS aims to increase efficiency and effectiveness, facilitate the purchase of total solutions, maximize competition, and promote small business utilization across Government.
