A spokesperson for the General Services Administration said GSA is on track to issue a solicitation for the consolidated schedule on the first day of fiscal year 2020, FCW reported Tuesday. GSA announced its plans to merge 24 contract schedules into a single government-wide vehicle to simplify the procurement process for agencies in November 2018.
The agency has received feedback from approximately 600 contractors on the plan and found that 94 percent of respondents agree on the clarity of the new schedule’s format.
According to a fact sheet for the Multiple Award Schedules consolidation, GSA will conduct a “mass modification” process or modify existing schedule contracts to move to the single schedule in the first half of FY 2020 under the second phase. The third phase will combine multiple contracts into a single vehicle by the second half of FY 2020.
