Q2 GSA Contract Assessment

Optimize your GSA Contract in Q2 with Blackfyre's consulting services for maximum sales, compliance, and competitiveness in the government fiscal year's busier quarters.

Q2 GSA Contract Assessment

As the second quarter of the government fiscal year is historically slower for GSA Schedule sales, it's an opportune time to assess and ensure that your GSA Contract is current, complete, and compliant. This preparation is essential for maximizing your sales potential in the more active quarters. Here's a checklist of critical questions and insights to guide you through the Q2 GSA Contract Assessment:

Key Questions for Checking Your GSA Contract

  1. When was the last time you submitted a modification to adjust your GSA Contract?

    Regularly updating your contract ensures alignment with your current offerings and market position.

  2. Does your GSA Contract Price List reflect your current product/service offerings?

    Ensure all products and services listed are current, and remove any that are obsolete to maintain credibility and relevance.

  3. Is GSA Advantage! updated as contract modifications are approved?

    Keeping your GSA Advantage! listing current is crucial as it's the shopping platform used by government buyers.

  4. Have your commercial sales practices changed since negotiating GSA pricing?

    Changes in your commercial sales practices might affect your GSA pricing and terms, necessitating a modification to your contract.

Importance of Maintaining a Current GSA Contract

  • Maximizing Sales: An up-to-date contract is vital for capitalizing on the increased sales activity in the third and fourth quarters.

  • Compliance: Keeping your contract current ensures compliance with GSA terms and conditions, avoiding potential issues or audits.

  • Competitive Edge: A current and accurate contract helps maintain a competitive edge and reputation in the federal marketplace.

Understanding the Contract Modification Process

Taking modification seriously is part of maintaining an updated GSA contract. Here is what it involves:

  1. Timeline: Contract modifications typically take about 30 days for approval by your Contracting Officer. Planning modifications in advance avoids the scramble for last-minute updates.

  2. Types of Modifications: Whether adding or deleting products/services, adjusting prices, or changing terms, each change requires approval through a formal modification process.
