The chart below shows the top ten NAICS codes with the highest amount of awards through the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract and the VA Federal Supply Schedule Contract in fiscal year 2022. Collectively, these two contract vehicles are referred to as the GSA/VA Schedule or FSS. The light blue bars represent total GSA/VA Schedule contract awards in fiscal year 2022, while the bright green bars illustrate contract awards to small businesses.
When it comes to awards through the GSA/VA Schedule, services dominate, accounting for nine of the top ten NAICS codes. While the Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services sector accounts for approximately 30% of all government contract awards, it accounts for more than 60% of awards under the GSA/VA Schedule.
Another observation worth noting is the higher percentage of awards to small businesses through the GSA/VA Schedule. Out of the top ten NAICS codes, small businesses accounted for less than 20% of total federal government contract awards. However, under the GSA/VA Schedule, small businesses accounted for 45% of awards within the top ten NAICS.
