Website Resources for GSA Schedule Contractors

Acquisition.gov

Acquisition.gov may be known mostly for housing the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), along with other federal regulations such as the General Services Acquisition Manual (GSAM). However, the website also includes links to procurement forecasts, business opportunities, and small business pages for each federal agency. While some agencies will post a link to SAM.gov or an excel sheet with upcoming opportunities, other agencies like DHS and GSA maintain a searchable dashboard of upcoming opportunities.

On the Acquisition.gov website you can:

  • Lookup FAR clauses and other federal regulations
  • View COVID-19 related guidance and memorandums
  • Review information on Section 889, Prohibition on Certain Telecom Services and Equipment
  • Access procurement forecasts for federal agencies

Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS)

If you hold a GSA Schedule Contract and are classified as an “other than small business” you’re required to establish a subcontracting plan and submit regular subcontracting reports. The Electronic Subcontracting Reporting Systems (eSRS) website is where GSA Contractors, and other federal contractors required to establish subcontracting plans, go to submit subcontracting reports.

On the eSRS website you can:

  • Submit Individual Subcontract Reports and Summary Subcontract Reports

FAS Sales Reporting

On GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) Sales Reporting Portal (SRP) website, companies that hold a GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) or other non-MAS GSA Contract, including GSA Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACS), report sales. Note: if you hold a VA Schedule Contract, you report sales through the VA Sales Reporting System here.

On the FAS SRP website you can:

  • Report sales for your GSA Contract
  • Report transactional data if participating in Transactional Data Reporting (TDR)
  • Remit your Industrial Funding Fee (IFF)

FAS Schedule Sales Query Plus

On the FAS Schedule Sales Query Plus website you can pull reports on GSA Multiple Award Schedule Contract sales. The database represents sales reported by contractors and is currently the only source that breaks down GSA Schedule sales to the Special Item Number (SIN) level. The website is not incredibly intuitive to use and may require light training to navigate. Note: VA Schedule Sales Reports are published as excel files here.

On GSA’s SSQ+ website you can build reports to review:

  • Sales by Company
  • Sales by Special Item Number
  • Sales by Business Size
  • Sales by Vendor Location

GSA Advantage!

GSA Advantage is an online shopping platform for government buyers looking to purchase products and services sold through GSA/VA Schedule Contracts, GSA’s Global Supply Program, and GSA’s Special Order Program. Note: GSA Advantage includes products awarded under the VA Schedule Contract. However, VA Schedule Contract holders will also have their products added to the VA’s National Acquisition Center (NAC) Contract Catalog Search Tool (CCST).

On the GSA Advantage website you can:

  • Search for specific products and services sold through GSA/VA Schedules
  • Conduct competitor pricing research
  • Research which GA Schedule Special Item Number(s) specific products are placed under

eOffer/eMod

If your company is looking to obtain a GSA MAS Contract you will upload your proposal through the eOffer system. You can also make changes to your GSA Contract by submitting modifications through the eMod section of the website. A modification is needed to update your pricing, add or remove products or services, add Special Item Numbers (SINs), and update points of contact. Note: VA Schedule Contract proposal and modification submissions are not submitted through eOffer/eMod and are instead handled via email.

Note: VA Schedule Contractors will receive notice of mass modifications from the VA via email.
