The GSA Schedule is also referred to as the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) and Multiple Award Schedule (MAS).
Prior to award of your GSA contract, you will negotiate your standard Equitable Price Adjustment (EPA). GSA maintains a standard of no more than a 10% price increase per category item yearly unless otherwise justified.
A digital certificate verifies a company’s identity and enables them to electronically sign documents in eOffer and eMod. As of March 8, 2021, contractors now use FAS ID to log into eOffer and eMod and no longer need digital certificates for the GSA Schedule program. This results in a cost savings and time savings for industry partners. For assistance with questions regarding FAS ID, contact the FAS National Customer Service Center at 1-800-488-3111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
GSA fully supports Executive Order 14005 to advance the policy that the U.S. government should “use terms and conditions of Federal financial assistance awards and Federal procurements to maximize the use of goods, products, and materials produced, and services offered in, the United States.” Under the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Program, industry partners sell their commercial goods and services directly to government agencies. GSA works with our industry partners to make sure they are compliant with basic federal regulations and policies and offer goods and services at fair and reasonable prices.
