The General Services Administration has consolidated eight acquisition contracts for professional services into a new single contract vehicle that opened for business Oct. 1.

Tiffany Hixson, a regional commissioner and professional services category executive at GSA, wrote in a blog post published Thursday the agency sought to cut down on contract duplication through the consolidation initiative.

GSA eliminated more than 700 contracts and estimates $3.95 million in savings over five years as a result of the move, according to Hixson.

The agency projects sustained savings of $1.29 million per year after that five-year period, Hixson said.

GSA held a webinar for contracting and program professionals Thursday to go over the new single schedule and a second for contractors is scheduled for Oct. 21.
