Phase 2 of the MAS Consolidation: What It Means for Your GSA Schedule

The Phase 2 mass modification of GSA's Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Consolidation marks a critical transition for existing GSA Schedule contract holders, effectively moving them to the new consolidated MAS structure. As this phase is set to commence, here are the essential insights and impacts for GSA Schedule holders:

Temporary Hold on SIN Additions:

Take note of a temporary halt on SIN additions that will occur from the end of January to mid-March due to system updates. If you need to add a SIN, ensure it's done before this period.

Rolling Mass Modification Schedule:

From the end of January, look out for GSA issuing mass modifications to approximately 2,000 contractors daily over a two-week period. The order will be based on the legacy schedule number.

For Companies with Multiple GSA Schedules:

Companies holding multiple schedules should prepare to receive and must accept a mass modification for each. Please note that the actual consolidation of multiple schedules into one will occur in Phase 3.

Acceptance Deadline:

Contractors have until July 31, 2020, to accept the mass modification. Failure to accept by this deadline will result in the contract being dropped from GSA eLibrary and GSA Advantage.

Implications of Accepting the Mass Mod:

  • Acceptance of the mass modification will transition your contract to the new consolidated MAS structure but won't change your contract number, expiration date, remaining options, or negotiated terms.
  • Your SINs will be mapped to new MAS SINs.
  • You are required to update your GSA Advantage! listing within 30 days of accepting the mass mod.

Benefits of the Consolidation:

There are several potential benefits to look forward to with the consolidation. It is anticipated to reduce administrative burdens, especially for those holding multiple schedules. As a bonus, it delivers a streamlined way to expand offerings under the GSA Schedule without needing additional contracts for different product or service categories.

Preparation for Transition:

  1. Review all negotiated terms of your current schedule to fully understand the implications of the transition.
  2. Ensure that all relevant NAICS codes are listed in your record.
  3. Prepare for necessary updates to your GSA Advantage! listing.

Future Opportunities:

Once you have accepted the mass modification, you'll be able to add any qualifying products or services from the consolidated MAS offerings to your existing contract. This reflects the streamlined and unified approach of the new MAS. The MAS Consolidation represents a significant step towards simplifying and streamlining the GSA Schedules Program, potentially offering more flexibility and opportunities for contractors while reducing administrative complexities.
