    About Industrial Products & Services Category

    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.

    How to get on the GSA Industrial Contract

    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.

     l

    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.

      Testimonials

      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.
