Stephanie Shutt: GSA Eyes Consolidation of Special Item Numbers

Jeff Brody

Stephanie Shutt, director of the Multiple Award Schedules program management office at the General Services Administration, said GSA is set to release a request for information on a plan to reduce the special item numbers by the end of June as it works to implement a unified schedule contract, FCW reported Thursday.

Shutt said the agency asked the acquisition centers to assess their SINs for consolidation opportunities in order to address duplication. GSA issued on Friday, June 7, an RFI for the proposed schedule consolidation and expects to have a unified contract in place by Oct. 1.

"There won't be any surprises," she said of the consolidated schedule at a Professional Services Council conference Thursday. "You're not going to see anything new. No new terms and conditions.”

GSA announced plans to combine 24 schedules into a single procurement vehicle to simplify the buying process for client agencies in November.
