Is the GSA Schedule Right For My Company?

​Ever since you registered in the Schedule for Award Management (SAM) database to be able to do work with the federal government, you’ve been receiving telemarketing by people who insist that you need GSA Schedule – the so-called magic bullet to selling to the federal government. Is it really that valuable?

This webinar is designed to give your business insight into the General Services administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program. This program can be an important tool for selling to government buyers, but the benefits aren’t there for every business. We’ll discuss the program in its entirety. You’ll learn whether you qualify for a GSA schedule, as well as what will be necessary to keep the contract long-term and actually generate revenue.

By the end of this discussion, you should have a better idea if the program is a good fit for your company.
