Understanding the GSA Schedule Process

Many federal agencies utilize General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule contracts to obtain needed goods and services in lieu of contracting on their own. For vendors, a GSA Schedule contract is an excellent marketing tool. However, obtaining a Schedule is an intricate process.

In this training event, Kansas Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) will address and explain many of the challenges businesses face when deciding whether they should seek a GSA Schedule contract. Topics covered will include a brief overview of the GSA mission, getting a “GSA Number,” why federal agencies use (and don’t use) GSA Schedules, the pros and cons of the GSA Schedule contracts, and much more. The presenter will discuss issues that businesses should consider before taking the “schedule plunge.”

Seating is limited for this program.
