If you are selling products or services in any of the noted GSA Schedules or you are hoping to in the future, you are at-risk of losing a substantial amount of your government business as GSA implements the FSSI for JanSan & MRO product categories
Under the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiave (FSSI), the GSA is working with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and all Federal Government Agencies to create new government-wide Federal Strategic Sourcing programs (FSSI) for commonly purchased products and services.
In August, 2013, it will impact Janitorial and Sanitation supplies (JanSan) and
Maintenance, Repair & Operations Supplies (MRO).
In 2014, it will impact Building Maintenance & Operations Services (BMO).
IN AUGUST, 2013, THE NUMBER OF GSA CONTRACTS FOR JANSAN VENDORS
WILL BE REDUCED TO JUST 21!
THESE BLANKET PURCHASE AGREEMENTS (BPAs) will be
awarded to the 21 JanSan vendors
with the lowest price.
Only 3 Vendors will be chosen for Cleaning Compounds & Related Dispensers.
Federal Agencies will be mandated to purchase JanSan supplies
from the 21 BPA awarded vendors.
The non-winners will be shocked to discover their federal government sales will be lost. “Mandatory is what we’re moving toward,” OFPP's Joe Jordan said. “There will be winners and losers, and not all who want to sell to the government can sell to the government.”
MRO WILL BE ALSO REDUCED TO JUST 15 CONTRACTS. Read more at our MRO FSSI website.
