MAS Consolidation Phase 3: Reducing Your GSA Contracts to One

Explore Phase 3 of GSA MAS Consolidation aimed at simplifying contract management for companies with multiple GSA MAS Contracts. Learn eligibility, benefits, and support resources.

Title : MAS Consolidation Phase 3: Reducing Your GSA Contracts to One

The third phase of the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Consolidation process is of utmost importance, especially for businesses holding multiple GSA MAS Contracts. Reducing these multiple arrangements into a single contract is the primary focus during this phase. So let's drill down into the crucial aspects:

Key Aspects of Phase 3 of MAS Consolidation:

Target Audience

Companies with more than one GSA MAS Contract under the same DUNS number (VA Schedule Contracts excluded) will be impacted by Phase 3.

Eligibility Criteria

If you hold multiple GSA MAS Contracts, none of which are classified solely as small business set-aside (SBSA), you will be part of this phase. Contracts that are follow-on, where a newer contract replaces an expiring one, don't fit the eligibility criteria.


For firms fitting the Phase 3 criteria, the submission of a MAS Phase 3 Contractor Checklist and a consolidation plan is obligatory. This is essential for merging their contracts into one.


The Phase 3 Checklists and Consolidation Plans initially had to be submitted by September 30, 2021, but this was subsequently pushed to December 31, 2021, and later to April 30, 2022.


Consolidation's primary aim is to lower contract administration burdens, allowing for streamlined sales reporting, Industrial Funding Fee (IFF) remittance, swift contractor assessments, and simple contract renewals.

Consolidation Choices

  1. Option 1: Selecting one contract as the surviving contract, modifying it to include the products and services from other contracts.
  2. Option 2: Selecting a surviving contract, cancelling other contracts with low-sales or those that are non-core.
  3. Option 3: Starting afresh with a new GSA MAS Contract proposal, cancelling all existing contracts.

Choosing a Surviving Contract

Consider factors like remaining performance period, contract sales, number of SINs, TDR participation, pricing structure, and existing BPAs while deciding on a surviving contract.

Preparation for Phase 3

  • Complete the required GSA Advantage MAS Update.
  • Address any pending mass modifications.
  • Ensure accuracy in terms and conditions, pricing, product/service listings, and contact information.
  • Be certain that up-to-date sales reports and IFF submissions are in place.
  • Update the registration, if necessary.
  • Address any findings from IOA Contractor Assessments.
