The Consolidated GSA MAS Contract

Discover the new consolidated GSA MAS Contract, its impact on contractors and how Blackfyre's consulting services can guide you through these changes.

The Consolidated GSA MAS Contract

At Blackfyre, as a distinguished GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm, we're committed to offering insights into the release of the new consolidated General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract. In this article, we'll breakdown the key aspects of the new MAS Contract and how contractors will be impacted.

The New Consolidated GSA MAS Contract:

In keeping up with its promise, the GSA has made an important move to consolidate the 24 legacy GSA Schedules into one comprehensive MAS Contract. This new singular contract aims to simplify the procurement process, ultimately making it easier for government agencies to acquire products and services and for contractors to offer their solutions.

Key Features of the New MAS Contract:

  1. Solicitation Number: The solicitation number for the consolidated GSA MAS Contract is 47QSMD20R0001.
  2. Structure: The new contract consists of 12 large categories, 83 subcategories, and 316 Special Item Numbers (SINs). This structure is believed to be more intuitive and align with common industry offerings.
  3. Location: The MAS solicitation is available on
  4. Detailed Requirements: Each large category has an attachment detailing additional requirements at the SIN and/or subcategory level.

Impact on Current and Prospective GSA Schedule Holders:

  1. Existing Contractors: Despite changes, it will be business as usual until early 2020, when GSA issues a mass modification to transition existing contracts to the new MAS Contract. Your contract number and expiration date will not change, but your SINs may be mapped to the new structure.
  2. Prospective Contractors: If you're considering obtaining a GSA Schedule, you will now apply under the new MAS Contract. It's important to understand the new structure and requirements.

Changes in the Consolidated MAS Contract:

  1. Naming: The term 'GSA Schedules' is officially transitioning to 'GSA Multiple Award Schedule' or 'MAS.'
  2. Structure: The consolidation introduces a significant change in structure with new SIN numbers and categories.
  3. Alternatives to Open Ratings: The new solicitation provides alternatives to the Dun & Bradstreet Open Ratings Past Performance Evaluation Report, simplifying the process for some contractors.
