The 6-Step GSA Schedule Process
Document Preparation and Submission
We help you gather internal documents, and prepare your full GSA Schedule Offer on your behalf. Decades of experience is behind each Offer we prepare, emphasizing quality first and speed second. Next, your offer is submitted into the GSA system for review. “Offer” is GSA lingo for the gig group of about 30 documents prepared in the very specific way the GSA requires.
GSA Offer Clarifications
The GSA will assign a Contracting Officer for review. They will normally take 3-6 months to review the GSA Offer documents. When they are finished, they will either reject, or ask for Clarifications. We prepare according to the specific GSA requirements, but rejections are still common in this process, especially if you are trying to get a GSA Contract in-house. This is because the GSA has adopted a very high standard. Correction and resubmission must be handled ASAP to keep momentum. Clarifications are also handled swiftly, answering all GSA questions, and revising any documents that need it.
Once the GSA is satisfied with your Offer documents, it is time to schedule the Negotiations phone call. This is just like it sounds. The GSA will ask for deeper discounts, and better terms. This is when having an experienced GSA Consultant really matters, because these final terms and conditions are nearly set in stone. Negotiating your discount alongside an expert will let you rest assured that your GSA Contract will benefit you fore the (20 year) life of the contract.
Award of Your GSA Schedule Contract

And, you gain access to GSA opportunities (like on GSA Advantage) that are otherwise hidden and unaccessible.
If you want to offer goods and/or services to government agencies, A GSA Contract will give you an advantage. If your business offers goods and services that fit into a GSA Category, then you can increase your revenue significantly with a GSA Contract.
The qualifications a company must have are: 2-years in business, financial stability, past performance, and products or services commercially offered (Trade Agreements Act compliant).
GSA awards Schedule Contracts to companies, which offer “commercial off the shelf” products and services that fit within the GSA Schedule sub-category descriptions (called Special Item Numbers or SIN’s). Keep in mind that some services and products are restricted from the GSA Schedules Program.
