This new infographic summarizes the process and benefits of getting a GSA contract. It contains:

- Sales chart to show that a GSA contract is worth getting
- Key GSA Schedule statistics
A GSA Contract delivers these benefits:
- Helps avoid open competitions on FedBizOpps by allowing agencies to buy from you based on predetermined terms, conditions and pricing.
- Rather than writing hundreds of pages of government proposals, GSA contracts simplify proposal writing. Most responses are limited to less than 20 pages.
- Since you already negotiated terms, a GSA contract minimizes complex Federal contracting issues
- Government buyers are risk adverse. A GSA contract provides marketing cachet and GSA "stamp of approval."
- A schedules contract shortens the time for Agencies to issue contracts to you, from about 268 days for conventional Federal contracts to about 15 days for a GSA order.
- Many government procurement officers prefer buying from a GSA contractor.
- A GSA contract enables you to sell to state and local governments under some circumstances.
- GSA provides its contractors with marketing support (free advertising in GSA's magazine, listing in GSA Advantage, and exposure to multiple government procurement sites).
