The General Services Administration will collaborate with other government agencies and vendors to change portions of GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules program, Federal Times reported Monday.

Aaron Boyd writes GSA wants to implement a new pricing model that would allow the agency to compare industry bids to commercial market prices and existing contracts.

GSA also aims to automate the contract modification system as well as streamline the end-user license agreement review process.

“We can do better by reducing burdensome regulations and processes for industry and reducing price variability at the contract level to benefit all stakeholders,” said Tom Sharpe, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, according to the report.

Sharpe added the agency will ask public and private sector organizations to submit ideas on how to refresh its MAS program and modify acquisition regulations in January.
