The General Services Administration is working with industry to implement a consolidated professional services contract schedule for vendors and customer agencies by November, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Jason Miller writes Tiffany Hixson, professional services category executive at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said the consolidation effort is aimed to make it easier for agencies to procure services.

“We will have one schedule and our customers will no longer have to compete their requirements among up to eight schedules depending on what their needs are,” she told Federal News Radio.

She noted to the station that providers in the existing schedules will each receive a new 20-year contract under the consolidated version.

Federal News Radio reports Kathy Jocoy will serve as the primary GSA liaison to industry on the schedules consolidation and category management efforts.

The agency also seeks to standardize the Special Item Numbers structure as well as add an Other Direct Costs category in federal schedules, according to the station.
