General Services Administration Multiple Award
Schedule (GSA MAS) contract
Since 2009, our customized marketing solutions have resulted in over $10M in contract awards to our clients!
Business Case for Acquiring a GSA MAS
GSA Multiple Award Schedules are one of the oldest and most frequently used federal contract vehicles. They account for nearly 10% of the $500 Billion in contract awards to the private sector every year.
Between 10,000 -15,000 businesses and organizations that contract with the federal government are currently on GSA MAS, representing less than 5% of firms that do business with the federal government. The GSA MAS is comprised of Large Category and Small Category Descriptions also described as Special Item Numbers (SINs). These SINs cover the vast majority of what the federal government buys in products and services annually. The firms on GSA MAS are recognized as leaders in their respective industries, based on the ability to acquire this highly sought-after contract vehicle.
The GSA MAS contract lists all products and services that have been negotiated and awarded to private firms and organizations, along with the pricing, terms, and conditions. The GSA MAS contract can be used by all federal agencies, as well as state and local government (in some cases) to award contracts.
Small businesses benefit greatly from being on the GSA MAS! They can combine it with their small designations to attract the attention of federal government buyers. These buyers can facilitate a contract award that is in conformity with Federal Acquisition Regulations. This can help generate the type of revenue needed for small businesses to survive among bigger players.
Altogether, over 80% of federal government contractors that generate greater than $1MM in annual revenue are on the GSA MAS. It is a proven effective way to grow your federal government business base.
The GSA MAS contract term is for five (5) years. However, three (3) five-year renewals are allowed resulting in a potential total contract term of twenty (20) years. During this period, the listing of products and services may be expanded
through the contract modification process. Terms and conditions may also be renegotiated based on prevailing market conditions.
Despite the attractiveness of the GSA MAS, acquiring the contract involves an extensive knowledge of:
Federal government’s established acquisition requirements
Terms and conditions
Technical Proposal Responses
These requirements are outlined in a 200-page document that is updated yearly. The proposal effort requires a Cost and Pricing submission as well as a Technical Proposal that typically results in a 100 plus page proposal document, which can be cumbersome to complete. Negotiation of pricing, terms, and conditions with the government is critical to the long-term use of the contract vehicle.
RMC GSA 360 Solutions offers a custom-designed, comprehensive solution to address the proposal requirements of the current GSA MAS solicitation. Our Proposal Management tools and expert guidance allow clients to successfully submit their Cost and Pricing and technical Proposal to GSA. This has resulted in a 100% RMC contract award success rate. The typical duration for contract award is within 90 days of proposal submission.
Contract Administration and Compliance Support
Post-contract award, GSA has a myriad of confusing mandatory contract administration and compliance requirements that if not properly addressed, will result in the cancellation of the contract. Additionally, after the initial award, GSA Schedule holders are allowed to expand their listing of products and services through the contract modification process.
RMC GSA 360 Solutions will take on the burden of ensuring that contract administration and compliance requirements are met. We will also modify your GSA MAS contract as your product and service offerings expand.
Marketing and Capture Management Support
A GSA MAS contract is a unique and attractive way to sell to the federal government. Once on Schedule, a firm will receive GSA EBUY Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and Quotations (RFQs) daily. Additionally, when marketing to the federal government, pricing, terms and conditions pre-negotiated with GSA allows for an expedient way to receive a contract award.
RMC GSA 360 Solutions provides expert, results driven strategies to utilize a GSA MAS contract to generate federal government business. One of the key factors in successful marketing to the government is market research. This fosters relationship building with federal agency program and contracting personnel. We have perfected this process and pass these strategies to our clients.
