    The GSA’s Industrial Products & Services Category provides a way for government agencies to procure everything they may need to maintain, repair, and manage flawless operation of units, offices and buildings.

    Previously known as legacy Schedule 51V Hardware Superstore, the Industrial Products & Services is now a Large Category within the GSA Consolidated MAS. Consolidation of the MAS Schedule restructured the existing Schedules into 12 categories. Now, all SINs from the legacy Schedule 51v are a part of the GSA Industrial Schedule.

    How profitable is this niche? Well, let’s see. Since many agencies need tools, equipment, materials, supplies of all kinds, the amount of sales is large and shows no signs of reducing over the years. In FY 2019, GSA Schedule 51v sales exceeded $819 million. This number puts the legacy Schedule on the 5th place among all GSA Schedules.

    And what about competition? With over 300 current contractors, the Industrial Products and Services category is rather competitive; however the stakes are also higher than in many other categories. On average, each contractor does more than $2 million in sales with this Schedule. Surely, that’s what your business needs, too.

    Getting on the GSA Industrial Schedule can result in a very profitable contract award. However, without knowing the ins-and-outs of the government contracting system, you are at risk of losing time and money, when you first apply for a GSA contract. The Industrial Products & Services (previously Schedule 51V Hardware Superstore) is no different. In fact, due to significant competition, stronger efforts should be made, to successfully secure a contract. 

    While the application procedure is rather standard (see below), there are multiple subtle aspects not really known to the majority of vendors, willing to sell on the government market. Surely, you can learn everything yourself, but that will cost you months and months of trial and error. An alternative is to hire an agency that will masterfully guide you through the entire process of getting onto the GSA Industrial Schedule.


    Step 1: Learn the basics. Even if you are to hire an agent that will do everything for you, you still are required to pass the obligatory GSA training courses, to learn the basics of the government contracting. We strongly recommend you to build your knowledge as much as you can. This will help you make more informed decisions in the future, successfully communicate with contracting officers, understand competition, bid knowingly, and win better prices and so on.

    Step 2: Preparation. In order to submit your application for a GSA Schedule you need to compile and prepare a set of documents, several dozen of them. These are such documents as financial statements, pricelists, technical specifications, PPE reports, compliance documents, application forms, and others. Typically, you can find the list of required documents in the solicitation of the Schedule you apply for. Importantly, the assigned contracting officer may (and often will) get back to you to clarify specifications, request missing documents, ask questions she may have, and so on.

    Step 3: Negotiation and award. After the entire document package is ready and submitted, but before the actual contract is awarded, the contracting officer will initiate price and terms negotiation. The process has many nuances that may wreck the nearly awarded contract. That is why Price Reporter is ready to assist you in this part of the GSA contracting process. Shortly after negotiations your company is awarded with the Industrial Products & Services contract.

    Step 4: After award. Even though you have your GSA contract now, you still have to do a lot of work to fulfill the minimum sales requirement, maintain compliance of your products and services, market your offer on the federal sales platforms and on the Web and so on. And again, Price Reporter is ready to help you with your GSA Industrial Schedule contract, at any stage.

      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.
