Order Level Materials coming to GSA Schedules

Your trusted team at Blackfyre, renowned for their skill in GSA Federal Schedule Consulting, is ready to help you navigate the exciting new updates - Order-Level Materials (OLMs) coming to GSA Schedules. As your most dependable mas consultants and GSA schedule assistance providers, we believe it is vitally important to keep pace with any changes in the GSA Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) Program. So, let’s explore what you need to know:

Introduction of Order-Level Materials (OLMs)

In a groundbreaking shift, GSA is now allowing the inclusion of Order Level Materials under the GSA MAS Program. Defined as supplies or services acquired in direct support of a task or delivery order placed against a GSA Schedule Contract or Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs), OLMs are set to offer increased flexibility and efficiency in completing orders under GSA Schedules.

Incorporation of OLMs through New SIN

OLMs will now be a part of a new Special Item Number (SIN) in seven GSA Schedules. For existing contractors looking to add the new OLM SIN, they should accept the Commercial Supplier Agreements (CSA) mass modification first, followed by the OLM mass modification. This step will only serve to strengthen a contractor's ability to provide complete solutions and directly support tasks or delivery orders effectively.

The 7 GSA Schedules to Receive OLM SIN

The initial launch of OLM SINs will have an effect on the following schedules:

  1. 03FAC – Facilities Maintenance and Management
  2. 56 – Buildings and Building Materials
  3. 70 – IT
  4. 71 – Furniture
  5. 84 – Total Solutions for Security
  6. 00CORP – The Professional Services Schedule
  7. 738 X – Human Capital Management & Administrative Support Services

Key Points for Contractors Using OLM SIN

  • Cap on OLMs: OLMs cannot exceed 33.33% of the order, excluding travel costs.
  • Quotation Requirement: Unless you have an approved purchasing system, you must obtain at least 3 quotes for each OLM above the simplified acquisition threshold.
  • Reporting and Fees: OLMs are not considered open market items; contractors will have to report sales and pay the Industrial Funding Fee (IFF) on OLMs.

Benefits of Adding OLMs to Schedules

The essential benefits derived from the inclusion of OLMs to schedules are two-fold. The GSA hopes to increase the usage of the GSA Schedules Program and also reduce the generation of duplicative contracts. This means a streamlined procurement process for government buyers, with the added opportunity for contractors to provide more comprehensive service offerings and potentially increased sales.

What This Means for Existing Contractors

For those who currently hold one of the specified GSA Schedules, it’s crucial to be prepared for a mass modification in the early summer. Accepting this modification will include the OLM SIN, complete with its terms and conditions, to your contract. Blackfyre is here to help navigate and better understand these modifications, making sure you remain compliant and effectively integrate the OLM SIN into your overall business strategy.
