GSA Application - How do I apply for a GSA Contract


GSA Application is a bit of a misnomer.  If your firm qualifies for a GSA contract, the you must prepare a proposal, called an offer, based on a specific GSA Solicitation. 

GSA has about 33 schedules that cover over 30 million commercial products and services. You select the schedule that best fits your needs, download that solicitation, and then prepare your proposal based on very detailed instructions.  It's a complex process and many important decisions must be made, especially with regard to pricing.  To be awarded a GSA contract, you must (under most circumstances) make the government your most favored customer.
