GSA Ordering Process
The GSA makes procuring DCS IT Equipment, Software, Business, and Professional Engineering Services quick and convenient. The ordering procedures have been simplified to allow Federal agencies to cut through red tape and drastically reduce paperwork.
GSA has already:
- Synopsized the procurement
- Negotiated the contracts
- Determined prices to be fair and reasonable
- Met Competition in Contracting Act (CICA) requirements
- Complied with all procurement regulations in establishing contracts
This pre-qualification enables your Agency to keep its documentation and paperwork to a minimum while exercising its discretion in determining “best value” in obtaining services and products to support it’s mission.
Ordering Process Details:
Obtaining IT, and PES services is quick and easy. GSA has determined the prices on all of the Federal Supply Schedules to be fair and reasonable based on their competition prior to award (FAR 8.404).
