With GSA Schedules, federal, state and local government buyers can access more than 12 million commercial supplies and services. What's the advantage of purchasing from these contracts? Let's take a look. 


Purchasing from GSA Schedule contracts (also referred to as Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) and Federal Supply Schedules) offer the following advantages over purchasing on the open market:

  • GSA has pre-negotiated prices under Schedule contracts to be fair and reasonable.
  • Synopses are not required for Schedule purchases.
  • Schedule contracts have been awarded in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations (FAR compliance).
  • Administrative time is reduced.
  • Schedule contracts offer a wide selection of state-of-the-art commercial supplies and services.
  • Small business goals are met.

Now you might be asking, who can buy from Schedules? Here's a list of who these are open to:

  • Federal agencies (military and civilian)
  • Mixed ownership government corporations as identified in 31 U.S.C. § 9101
  • District of Columbia
  • Qualified nonprofit agencies for the blind or other severely handicapped individuals for use in making or providing an approved commodity or service to the government
  • State and local governments for certain Schedule purchases,
  • Contractors authorized under FAR 51 and many more.
