MAS Consolidation Phase 3: Reducing Your GSA Contracts to One

Explore Phase 3 of the GSA MAS Consolidation process aimed to simplify contract management for companies with multiple GSA MAS Contracts, and its key aspects.

MAS Consolidation Phase 3: Reducing Your GSA Contracts to One

The Phase 3 of the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Consolidation process is specifically for companies holding multiple GSA MAS Contracts. This crucial phase involves consolidating these numerous contracts into a singular, manageable contract. Let's dive into the key aspects:

Key Aspects of Phase 3 of MAS Consolidation

The third phase targets a specific group and comes with certain eligibility criteria and requirements. Here's a succinct breakdown:

Target Group

Phase 3 affects companies with more than one GSA MAS Contract under the same DUNS number, excluding VA Schedule Contracts.

Eligibility Criteria

  1. You're part of Phase 3 if you have multiple GSA MAS Contracts, none of which are classified solely as small business set-aside (SBSA).
  2. Contracts should not be follow-on contracts, where a new contract is intended to replace an expiring one.


Companies in Phase 3 must submit a MAS Phase 3 Contractor Checklist and a consolidation plan to merge their contracts into one.


The deadline for submitting Phase 3 Checklists and Consolidation Plans was initially September 30, 2021, extended to December 31, 2021, and then further lengthened to April 30, 2022.


Consolidation aims to reduce contract administration burden, enabling streamlined sales reporting, Industrial Funding Fee (IFF) remittance, contractor assessments, and contract renewals.

Consolidation Options

There are several paths companies can take when consolidating their contracts. These include:

  1. Option 1: Select one contract as the surviving contract and modify it to include products and services from other contracts.
  2. Option 2: Select a surviving contract and cancel other low-sales or non-core contracts.
  3. Option 3: Start anew with a fresh GSA MAS Contract proposal and cancel all existing contracts.

Choosing a Surviving Contract

Consider factors such as remaining performance period, contract sales, number of SINs, TDR participation, pricing structure, and existing BPAs.

Preparation for Phase 3

Before consolidating contracts, there are several preparatory steps organizations need to take:

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