    GSA purchasing refers to the procurement process conducted by federal government agencies through the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The GSA serves as the purchasing agent for the government, facilitating the acquisition of a wide range of products, services, and solutions from pre-approved vendors. GSA purchasing leverages pre-negotiated contracts, pricing agreements, and streamlined procedures to simplify the procurement process and ensure compliance with government regulations.

    Engaging in GSA purchasing offers several benefits for federal government agencies:

    Time and cost savings: GSA purchasing streamlines the procurement process by eliminating the need for extensive negotiations and repetitive contract award procedures. This saves time and reduces administrative costs associated with traditional procurement methods.

    Access to pre-approved vendors: GSA purchasing provides access to a vast pool of pre-approved vendors who have undergone a rigorous evaluation process. This ensures that government agencies can work with reputable suppliers who meet specific qualifications and comply with government regulations.

    Competitive pricing and terms: GSA contracts often include pre-negotiated pricing and favorable terms, allowing government agencies to save the taxpayers’ money. Vendors on the GSA schedule offer competitive pricing, volume discounts, and special pricing arrangements, maximizing the value of government purchases.

    GSA Buy refers to the online platform provided by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) for federal government agencies to procure products and services from pre-approved vendors. It is a user-friendly e-commerce website that simplifies the purchasing process by offering a wide range of products and services through GSA contracts. GSA Buy allows government agencies to search for, compare, and purchase items in a streamlined and efficient manner.

    GSA Buy prioritizes transparency in the purchasing process through the following measures:

    Detailed product information: GSA eBuy provides detailed product descriptions, specifications, and images to help government agencies make informed purchasing decisions. This ensures transparency by providing comprehensive information about the items available for purchase.

    Pricing visibility: GSA eBuy displays pricing information, including any discounts or special pricing arrangements negotiated by the GSA. This allows government agencies to compare prices and select the most cost-effective options.

    Reviews and ratings: GSA eBuy may include reviews and ratings for products and vendors. These reviews are submitted by other government agencies, enabling transparency and providing insights into the quality and reliability of products and services.

    GSA procurement refers to the process of acquiring goods, services, and solutions by federal government agencies through the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The GSA serves as the centralized procurement authority for the government, facilitating the acquisition of a wide range of products and services from pre-approved vendors. GSA procurement ensures compliance with government regulations, promotes fair competition, and streamlines the purchasing process for government agencies.

    The GSA Approved Products List (APL) is a comprehensive catalog of products and services that have been approved by the General Services Administration (GSA). This list is specifically curated for government agencies and entities, providing them with a reliable resource to identify and procure products that meet the required security and compatibility standards. The GSA APL ensures that government agencies can access trustworthy products that align with their needs and regulations.

    Three important points to note about the GSA Approved Products List are:

    Verification Process: Products undergo a rigorous verification process to ensure they meet the necessary standards set by the GSA. This process involves thorough testing, evaluation, and certification.

    Security and Compatibility: The listed products are evaluated based on their security features and compatibility with existing government infrastructure. This ensures that government agencies can integrate these products seamlessly and maintain a secure environment.

    Regular Updates: The GSA APL is regularly updated to include new products and remove outdated or discontinued ones. This ensures that government agencies have access to the latest and most reliable products in the market.


    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!

    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.

    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.

    GSA Purchasing

    The General Services Administration (GSA) plays a crucial role in government procurement, ensuring efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and transparency in the acquisition of goods and services. 

    GSA Purchasing refers to the agency’s comprehensive approach to managing federal acquisitions, including negotiating contracts, establishing pricing schedules, and facilitating the procurement process for government agencies. By leveraging its purchasing power, the GSA helps federal entities access a wide range of products and services at competitive rates, ultimately saving taxpayer dollars and promoting responsible spending in the public sector. This centralized approach simplifies the procurement process, fosters consistency, and enhances accountability, making GSA Purchasing a cornerstone of effective government operations.


    Not sure if GSA needs your products? Read this:

    The GSA provides procurement services to hundreds of federal, state, and municipal agencies across the entire U.S.

    The spectrum of goods and services that all these agencies need every day is extremely wide. GSA purchasing requests cover anything from furniture to IT, office goods to cleaning services. The growing annual acquisition budget already exceeds $40 billion.

    Knowing what the government buys helps drive successful GSA sales. Price Reporter has the solution. Using our proprietary tool, our experts identify best selling brands and products within your schedule/product category.

    To simplify the acquisition process, GSA categorizes all goods and services it orders using the system of SINs: Special Item Numbers. SINs unambiguously identify a product or a group of products. After GSA MAS Consolidation, SINs now mostly match NAICS codes, so seeing whether the government needs your product is even easier than before.

    Currently, there are over 900 SINs. The SINs are split into 24 GSA Schedules. For example, IT 70 Schedule alone covers several dozens of SINs that can be found here. While the internal structure of GSA Schedules is currently subject to change, one thing remains unchanged: GSA constantly needs literally millions of various products and services If you aren’t sure, whether you are eligible to apply for a GSA Schedule, use the below form to find the best selling brands and products, in any specific SIN.


    The GSA procurement system includes a special online shopping/ordering system called GSA Advantage.

    There, vendors can submit their offers within the GSA schedule contracts they hold, and federal buyers can browse this online GSA catalog searching for the best offers and bids.


    Composing a good offer with a competitive bid is not a one-day job. Preliminary investigation of the government market.


    GSA buys almost everything in an expanding market. We are here to help you enter this extremely profitable world of government sales! Price Reporter will help you compose and submit documents to apply for a GSA Schedule with minimum effort and time.
