Share |
For the past seven years, GSA has kept Schedule 75 closed. As you know, NOPA has continued to push for the reopening of Schedule 75 so that our dealers can have every opportunity to compete on a level playing field for government business. GSA announced the following steps:

 

On Friday, September 29, the General Services Administration (GSA) announced its final strategy for reopening Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) 75.  GSA also announced the release of a new, updated letter of supply (LoS) for MAS 75.  GSA anticipates accepting new offers on the Schedule by the end of the first quarter of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018.  This translates to the RFQ opening this November or December Calendar Year (CY) 2017.  Currently MAS 75 has 285 dealers, and FSSI OS3 has 27 dealers.  Some have speculated that as many as 500 to 550 dealers could apply for Enhanced MAS 75.

 

GSA will be establishing the following enhanced Special Item Numbers (SINs):

  • SIN 75-220, Office Products and Services/OS4 – The Third Generation of the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative for Office Supplies (FSSI OS3) will conclude, and OS4 is expected to be integrated into Enhanced MAS 75
  • Sin 75-280, Overseas Office Products and Services/OS4 – This will complement the FSSI OS3 solution for customers Outside of the Continental United States (OCONUS) – Embassies, Military bases, and the Territories – Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan, etc.

The enhanced SINS will incorporate all of the Best-in-Class (BIC) features of OS3, while maintaining the current MAS 75 features.  GSA refers to these new SINs as the Office Supplies Fourth Generation (OS4) for Office Products and Services. In addition, GSA will be reopening the following MAS 75 SINs:

  • SIN 75-200, Office Products (including office furniture)
  • SIN 75-85, Restroom Products
  • SIN 75-210, Office Services
