Govt. to Increase Contractor Notifications for GSA Schedules

The government will increase the amount of notifications it gives to contractors who hold spots on General Services Administration schedules, the Washington Post reports.

As of Monday, new acquisition rules require agencies to notify companies on a given schedule of all opportunities ranging from $3,000 to $150,000.

Agencies must allow the company to make an offer and contracting officers must consider the offer.

Agencies who follow the schedule but do not notify contractors must receive at least three proposals before awarding a purchase.

If an agency does not receive three proposals, it must give a written justification of why it did not.

Purchases valued at more than $150,000 are covered under these type of acquisition regulations.
