GSA Schedule

Contract #: 47QTCA21D001S

The GSA Schedule, also known as Federal Supply Schedule, and Multiple Award Schedule (MAS), is a long-term governmentwide contract with commercial companies that provide access to millions of commercial products and services at fair and reasonable prices to the government. MAS makes buying easy and efficient with the use of modern technology to connect government buyers and industry.

Schedule policy and procedures are guided by two major governing regulatory documents:

  • Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) – Pursuant to 41 U.S.C. 152(3), FAR Part 38 prescribes policies and procedures that GSA must follow in managing the Schedule program. FAR Subpart 8.4 prescribes ordering procedures for federal agencies when placing orders for supplies and services under Schedule.
  • General Services Administration Acquisition Manual (GSAM) – GSAM covers GSA acquisition policies and practices.

The MAS Program supports GSA's Federal Marketplace (FMP) strategy of modernizing and simplifying the buying and selling experience for all stakeholders.
