You will see the term “GSA Contract” a lot on our website. If you work in a government agency, you probably know all the ins and outs of GSA flooring and contract, but just in case, we wanted to give you some information on why you may benefit from purchasing through our contract.
Some background first… GSA stands for General Services Administration. It was established in 1949 to help federal agencies buy goods and services at the best value available. Think of it as a big collection of pre-negotiated contracts that procurement personnel can use to buy what they need. This collection of contracts is called the GSA Schedule or Federal Supply Schedules and they allow government agencies to buy countless kinds of commercial products at fixed low prices for a specific period of time.
So why buy from a GSA Contract? It’s easy. It saves the time and effort of going through the bidding process. (GSA has already done that for you to get the best pricing anyway!) Other benefits include:
• Excellent pricing. Because the products have already been awarded a contract by GSA, you can be assured of volume discount pricing.
• Choices, choices, choices. The GSA contract covers every type of floor covering and ceiling tile you would need.
• Control of the process. Since you already have a contracted vendor in place through GSA, you can order what you need when you need it.
