    From the Federal Governments point of view the GSA procurement process is important because it provides a streamlined and efficient way for federal agencies to purchase goods and services. The GSA contract streamlines the procurement process by pre-negotiating prices and terms with suppliers, making it easier and faster for agencies to obtain the products and services they need. Additionally, GSA contracts promote competition and ensure that government agencies get the best value for their procurement dollar. Overall, GSA government contracting helps to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of government procurement processes.

    From a contractors point of view a GSA contract is important because it provides them with the opportunity to participate in government procurement processes and secure contracts to provide goods and services to the federal government. This can lead to increased exposure, credibility, and revenue for contractors. The GSA offers a streamlined process for contractors to be pre-qualified for government contracts and reduces the time and effort needed to bid on government projects. Additionally, the GSA provides contractors with a number of benefits including access to a network of government buyers, and opportunities for professional development and networking. Overall, a GSA contract is a valuable asset for contractors looking to expand their business and tap into the government market.

    Some common types of GSA contracts include Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contracts for products and services, IT Schedule 70 for information technology solutions, and Transportation and Logistics Solutions Schedule for transportation and logistics services. Other GSA contract vehicles include Professional Services Schedule for various consulting services and Federal Supply Schedules for specific products and supplies. Companies can provide everything from office supplies and janitorial services to scientific research and development services through a GSA contract.

    2. Complex Process: The process of obtaining a GSA contract can be complex, involving extensive paperwork and documentation, which can be time-consuming and costly.
    3. Rigid Requirements: The GSA sets strict requirements for products and services offered under its contracts, which can limit a company’s flexibility and creativity.
    4. Stringent Compliance: Companies must comply with various regulations, standards, and policies, which can be challenging and costly to implement and maintain.
    5. Price Pressure: GSA contracts are often awarded based on the lowest price, which can result in decreased profit margins for companies.

    2. Your company has been operating for more than 2 years
    3. Your revenue has exceeded $100,000 per year for the last 2 years
    4. Register your business with SAM (System for Award Management)
    5. Determine your business’s NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) code

    7. Prepare a comprehensive proposal that meets GSA requirements and demonstrates your ability to meet government needs
    8. Submit the proposal to the GSA and follow up as necessary

    10. Comply with contract terms and continually update information in SAM

    It is important to thoroughly research the requirements and guidelines provided by the GSA, as well as to have a clear understanding of your business’s capabilities and the needs of the government. Hiring a knowledgeable and experienced procurement specialist or consultant like Price Reporter can also be helpful in securing a GSA contract.

    Contracting with the government refers to the process of negotiating and entering into a legally binding agreement with a government agency to provide goods and services. The process is governed by federal procurement laws and regulations, and typically involves a competitive bidding process. The key elements of a government contract include the statement of work, delivery schedule, payment terms, and contract clauses. To be successful in contracting with the government, it is important to have a thorough understanding of the procurement process and to be familiar with laws and regulations that govern government contracts.

    To get a contract with the federal government, you need to follow these steps:

    Identify a federal agency that procures the type of goods or services you offer.
    Register your business in, the government’s System for Award Management.
    Search for relevant procurement opportunities on the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website.
    Submit a proposal in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP) that meets all the requirements listed in the RFP.
    Participate in any required negotiations and discussions with the procuring agency.
    Sign a contract if your proposal is selected.
    It’s important to note that the federal government procurement process can be complex and competitive, so it’s advisable to familiarize yourself with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) as well as specific requirements of the procuring agency.

    Government contracts offer several opportunities for businesses and other organizations, including:

    Access to a large customer base: Government agencies are a major source of business for many companies, providing a stable and reliable source of income.

    Increased visibility and credibility: Winning a government contract can be a powerful marketing tool, providing companies with greater exposure and helping to establish their reputation as a trusted and reliable supplier.

    Potential for growth and expansion: Government contracts can provide companies with the resources and funding they need to grow and expand their operations.

    Ability to bid on future contracts: Companies that have a proven track record of delivering quality products and services to the government are often given priority when it comes to bidding on future contracts.

    Potential for long-term partnerships: Government contracts can lead to long-term partnerships between companies and government agencies, providing a stable and reliable source of business for years to come.

    Government contract consulting is a professional service that provides guidance and support to companies bidding on, and executing contracts with government entities. A consultant helps the company navigate complex regulations, procurement processes, and requirements that come with government contracts, and works to ensure that the company is in compliance and is delivering quality products and services. This can include assistance with proposal writing, contract negotiation, cost and price analysis, compliance and performance management.

    Price Reporter team has been efficient at managing our GSA contract catalogs for the past 5 years. They keep our catalogs well maintained and compliant, saving our resources and letting us focusing on making sales.


    The B. David Company enlisted the services of Price Reporter, Inc. to setup our DOD EMALL account. We are a second generation family owned company and were uncertain what would be required to complete this task. I fully recommend Price Reporter, Inc. to any company that is looking for assistance with their Government business endeavors. They were and have continued to be extremely helpful. We will continue to rely on Price Reporter, Inc. for future projects.

    Steven Ribnick, Sales & Operations Analyst, B. David Company, Inc.

    Price Reporter recently helped us with our 3rd GSA contract, the 2nd they did with us. It was the fastest we’ve ever been through the process with GSA. Each step was easy because the ground work was done before we were asked to do anything. Our pricing verification phase went smooth and quickly and both our contracts were accepted without rejection, with minimal negotiations with contracting.

    George McCullough, Director of Sales and Business Development, Darley

    We first learned about the DOD EMALL a couple years ago from Price Reporter. We decided to move forward on it in 2016. I would recommend them based on the following items:

    • They split the payment. Half upfront and the other half is only charged should DOD EMALL contract be awarded to you.
    • Adding Price Reporter, specifically Andrey Karpov and Igor London, as agents on our GSA schedule streamlined the process. They were able to communicate with our GSA Contracting Officer to ensure that we received what we needed for DOD EMALL from GSA. This saved time on my end and sped up the process.
    • They provide a list of everything you need. Andrey and the rest of his team are meticulous and understand the process on how to get a DOD EMALL contract and thus we benefited from their expertise.

    These are a few of the reasons why I would recommend Price Reporter, Inc. Thank you!

    Karl Prince, Finance Director, AES Systems, Inc.

    Since 2009, Price Reporter has provided Fisher Scientific timely competitive item level GSA pricing data allowing us to identify opportunities and threats. Their customer service focus is solid.

    Tim Evans, Government Segment Marketing Manager, NA, Fisher Scientific

    Price Reporter are helping make my life much easier and helping me feel so much better about our GSA contract. Thanks!!!

    Kristen Briggs, President, General Mailing & Shipping Systems, Inc.

    For the past 10 years, Price Reporter has been providing us with exceptional service for the maintaining of our GSA office supplies contract. They have updated our files on a very timely basis. They have provided modifications when required. For a number of years, they had been giving us a price algorithm where each of our items were priced more than our cost and a penny below the next competitor. A very unique position that gave us thousands of government orders – that was prior to the GSA FSSI BPA.
    And for all the service given, their cost was far less than any other consulting firm that we had contacted or worked with over the years.
    I would highly recommend their service to any small business that is either interested in getting into the federal government arena or who wants to have their contract maintained at a most highly professional level.
    Thank you for supporting a VETERAN OWNED SMALL BUSINESS.

    Bill Finch, Northeast Office Supply

    We looked around for a reputable company to help us acquire a GSA contract for Muzeek World Intl., Inc. After looking around we were unsuccessful in finding a good company. By chance, one of our colleagues recommended Price Reporter, Inc., so we called them up. I highly recommend Price Reporter to anyone looking for help in acquiring a GSA contract or any Government business dealings. They have the expertise and the know-how to get the work completed.

    Arash Sardarizadeh, Chief Operating Officer, Muzeek World Intl., Inc.

    We have used Price Reporter for various services over the past 5 years and have been very happy with the services they have provided and continue to provide for us. They work hard to help you get the most from your GSA Schedule and are able to adapt and customize to what your particular needs are. I highly recommend their services to others with GSA Schedules as they help you maximize your sales

    Jaime Mautz, PacificInk

    We are extremely grateful for all your help in guiding us through the whole process, as this was all new to us. Without the help of you and the rest of the team at Price Reporter, it would have been impossible to achieve our approval – or at the very least – it would have taken a very long time. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Price Reporter, Inc. to anyone needing assistance in government contracts. Your knowledge and assistance was invaluable and very much appreciated, and we look forward to a continued excellent relationship.

    Lee Middleton, CEO, Point Two Air Vests USA, LLC

    Without Price Reporter contacting me at the right time, GSA would probably cancel my contract already. The CO said that she contacted us back in November of 2016, but got no response. Then Price Reporter called me and helped me with all the things needed and I followed his advise. That’s how we found out that our contract will be terminated soon, but had enough time to take the corrective action. The CO called us recently and it looks like they will extend our contract life. Thanks so much for your timely follow up – Price Reporter gave our Government sales a new hope!

    Jennifer Truong, President, SF Cable, Inc.

    My company STEC-STEADFAST TECHNICS have worked with 2 IT companies before we linked up with PRICE REPORTER ,INC over 5 years ago. Ever since our relationship with the company, there is no reason to stop working with them.
    The company is staffed with experienced and high Tech professionals who meet our needs adequately.

    Where to start from

    Starting a government contracting business may seem like a terra incognita for you, but in fact the entire process is widely documented on numerous federal contract consulting resources, such as GSA eLibrary, Vendor Support Center and Small Business Administration at

    Also, we recommend checking out our blog articles about getting federal government contracts, on Price Reporter website:

    The articles and federal resources give you a systematic understanding of the entire contracting process and Federal Acquisition Regulations, which is the pledge of your future success as a federal government contractor.

    The next step would be to accomplish the obligatory training. The Pathways to Success is the training course that is required for all vendors to complete before they can apply for a GSA contract award.

    There are also SBA Programs helping small and disadvantaged businesses to enter government contracting with more ease. Make sure to check them out too.


    Starting a government contracting business is only available to certified federal contractors.

    What is certification? Basically, these are certain requirements and federal contracting rules you should comply with, in order to gain access to federal contracts. This may sound like a terrifying experience, but in fact the government simply wants to be sure that your business is stable and reliable enough for a federal contract.

    Among the obligatory requirements are:
    1. At least two years in business in the industry, within which you will be offering service or products to the government.
    2. Officially registered business. Your business can only sell to the government if it is properly registered. This includes getting NAICS codes and Product Service Code (PSC).
    3. Commercially available products. You cannot sell to the federal government something you didn’t sell previously on the commercial market.
    4. Financial stability. Being stable means having a certain minimum annual revenue for at least two years. Currently it is $100,000 per year.
    5. Good Past Performance Report. The government conducts business with the most reliable companies only. So, it evaluates your past performance by contacting your clients directly.

    If you meet the requirements, you can submit the document package for a review. Sometimes, a procurement officer may require some clarification, and there will often be price negotiation which is an inevitable part of contracting with the federal government. You can read more about the required documents here.


    The obvious benefits of being a federal government contractor or vendor are:
    1. Access to the huge federal market. As a federal contractor, you are eligible to bid on federal contracts, and winning those would almost guarantee a stream of sales.
    2. Minimum advertising expenses. The federal market is rather narrow. While you still need some marketing efforts, your marketing expenses are comparably low.
    3. Reputation. A contractor for the federal government sounds very reputable. This helps you impress new clients on the commercial market, too. Indeed, if the government admits your expertise and professionalism, why wouldn’t anyone else do the same?
    4. Minimum 5 years contract. If you manage to win a contract, you remain in the business for a solid 5 years. And you can renew the contract for another 5 years three times, up to the total of 20!
