    What is GSA Office Management Category

    This large category under the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Consolidated Schedule encompasses various products, services and solutions that the federal agencies require to maintain workplaces functional and convenient, simplify everyday office tasks, and reduce operational costs.

    Overall sales under the Office Management Category in 2019 as reported by GSA contract holder companies, exceeded $1 billion. That’s a huge amount. And what’s even more exciting is that there are merely about 500+ contractors in this MAS category. This means that on average a contractor does over $2 million in sales through a GSA Office Management contract.

    Taking into account extremely high budgets of the Office Management contracts, no wonder many companies are dreaming of being awarded within this category. Based on our past experience, legacy schedules were also among the most popular and profitable GSA Schedules.

    The attractiveness of the GSA Office Management contracts is heavily based on the fact that almost all federal, state, and local agencies need office supplies and services regularly. Among the major purchasers in this category are the Veteran Affairs, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, the Army, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Department of Treasury.

    Summarizing, the GSA Office Management Large Category contract is relatively low-competition, big clients, and a profitable GSA contract.

    Legacy Schedules that were replaced by the Office Management Category

    The GSA Office Management Large Category replaces four legacy Schedules:

    • GSA Schedule 75 – Office Products/Supplies and Services
    • GSA Schedule 36 – Solicitation of Office, Imaging and Document Solutions
    • GSA Schedule 76 – Publication Media
    • GSA Schedule 58I – Professional Audio/Video Telemetry and Tracking

    Not all SINs from the above legacy Schedules were transferred. During the MAS Consolidation procedure, the GSA aimed to develop a simpler and more straightforward Multiple Award Schedule. The resulting classification is designed to be more logical, so some SINs from legacy Office Management Schedules were rearranged to other categories that seemed more appropriate to them.

    If your company previously held one or more of the above legacy Schedules, the Office Management Category under the new MAS Schedule would now govern them. 

    How to get on a GSA Office Management contract

    Overall, winning a GSA Office Management contract requires serious initial preparation and a lot of work. More than 80% of applications are declined due to various mistakes or discrepancies in the application documents and forms, or because the vendor failed to meet the GSA contract requirements.

    In order to simplify getting a GSA Office Management contract, you need to follow these general steps:

    • Prepare all necessary documents. Download the Office Management Contract solicitation to learn what exact documents are required. The GSA requires a total of about 30 documents including financial statements, price lists and price narrative, technical specifications, compliance reports, past performance reports, a number of standard forms and so on. Then, submit the documents to GSA.
    • GSA reviews your submission. After you submit your document package via the GSA eOffer service, a GSA contracting officer is assigned to your submission. He or she will review your application and get back to you if necessary, either to clarify certain parts of the document package, or to request some other information that your application is missing.
    • Price and conditions negotiation. After your application is reviewed and approved, the GSA procurement officer will contact you to negotiate terms and conditions of your offer as well as special discounts or prices. Creating a winning, yet still profitable price proposal is an art, because the government always wants better discounts even if your offer is already the most affordable on the market. Offer too much, and you will end up under a disadvantageous contract.
    • Award and post-award. When everything is settled, the GSA Schedule contract is awarded. You will be able to publish your offers on GSA e-commerce platforms including GSA Advantage! and GSA eBuy, respond to bids and receive opportunities. Needless to say, the work is not over yet. In fact, your success on the federal market is 99% determined by your ability to continue maintaining your contract, updating the catalog, marketing, and communicating with procurement officers.

      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.
