About the Event
You can’t play the game if you don’t understand the rules. That’s why anyone involved in government contracting should pay attention to steps by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to rewrite the process that handles government purchasing of more than 10 million commercial products each year.
This webinar will help Iowa companies understand the GSA’s three-phase strategy to overhaul and replace its legacy system, modify existing contracts, and consolidate all offers. The goal – to combine the 24 previous GSA schedules into one solicitation – is something that will affect all current and prospective contractors.
This webinar will focus on explaining what the GSA Schedule Consolidation is, the new SIN structure moving to NACIS, the phased approach/timeline for the implantation and rollout, the new system’s benefits, and its pain points. You’ll learn how to develop your strategy for success as a small business on a GSA schedule.
