The GSA and VA Schedules program, also known as the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) program, is important for businesses seeking government contracts. Contracts awarded under these programs are unique in the Federal contracting world and carry special requirements. Many firms can succeed is selling a lot of goods and services, but must do while fully complying with the contract’s requirements. Some unique aspects of this contract that pose distinct requirements on the contractor include the long-term nature of the contract (up to 20 years), restrictions on where products may come from, monitoring pricing and discounting in the commercial world very closely, tracking FSS sales separate from other government sales. Not complying with all aspects of these requirements can result in cancellation, fines and penalties.
