Be in the know with an extensive guide of what's to come:

Phase 3 Highlights

  1. Overview:

    The third and final phase of the GSA MAS Consolidation zeroes in on companies with several GSA Schedules. The main goal is to streamline former GSA Schedules into a singular GSA MAS Contract corresponding with each Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number.

  2. Impact on all GSA Contractors:

    As of August, GSA's eTools will only highlight the new GSA MAS categories. Contractors must ensure that their GSA Advantage listings mirror these updates by July 31, 2020, to evade removal. Signing the mass modification A812 by July 31, 2020, is essential to retain contract visibility and access to GSA Advantage and eBuy.

  3. For Contractors with several GSA Schedules:

    In July 2020, GSA will provide comprehensive instructions. We expect them to engage with the affected contractors starting August. Plans for contract consolidation won't be mandatory until January 2021. GSA promises to aid companies in formulating a plan to merge their multiple contracts into a single one.
