GSA issued a draft solicitation for the Office supplies 3 indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract Nov. 25 that puts more emphasis on small businesses, including consortiums, and would not be based on Schedule special item numbers.
GSA has established 12 new blanket purchase agreements for office supplies under the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative that will help federal agencies meet mandates to cut procurement expenditures by seven percent for the current and 2011 fiscal years. GSA's Steve Kempf explains.
The Coalition for Government Procurement asks the Federal Acquisition Service to reconsider its decision to close the office supplies schedule to new offerors for two year. The association says the decision will hurt small businesses and likely lead to higher prices for the government.
The General Services Administration freezes Schedule 75 to new vendors shortly after awarding a new strategic sourcing contract for office supplies. Small businesses say the combination of the two could have a detrimental effect on their ability to sell to the government. GSA expects to save $52 million a year across government from the BPA's lower prices.
The goal is to encourage agencies to use the new blanket purchase agreements signed with 15 companies in June.
The General Services Administration is suspending new companies from offering office supplies through Schedule 75 for two years.
