Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce
June 7, 2012
Scheduling Success? Issues and Opportunities for Small Businesses on the GSA Schedules
The hearing examined issues and opportunities for small businesses within the GSA’s Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Program. These contracts exist for the easy purchase of commercially available goods and services by all federal agencies, and approximately 10% of all federal contract dollars are spent using MAS contracts. Specifically, the Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce will be looking at the following issues: 1) Brooks Act Contracting on the MAS; 2) voluntary set-asides on the MAS; 3) strategic sourcing and the MAS; and 4) GSA’s proposed Demand Based Efficiency Model.
