GSA released Refresh 14 of the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Solicitation earlier today. This is the fifth consecutive month the agency has issued a refresh to change the MAS solicitation. While it may be getting difficult to keep up with the continual changes, most GSA contractors can file Refresh 14 away as not applicable to their business. In fact, existing GSA MAS Contract holders should not receive a mass modification in relation to this refresh.
What is Changing with Solicitation Refresh 14?
Today’s refresh includes just one new change. Effective today, GSA MAS Solicitation Refresh 14 has temporarily closed one subgroup of Special Item Number (SIN) 518210FM — the Core Financial Management Solutions subgroup.
The updated solicitation also reflects the deletion of SIN 541519CDM, Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Tools, and SIN 561210FS, Facilities Support Services. However, these two SIN deletions are not new. GSA formally announced the retirement of SINs 541519CDM and 561210FS in Refresh 13 last month.
SIN 518210FM, which was just released two months ago under the IT Solutions Subcategory, is currently the newest GSA SIN. This SIN is intended to help agencies find vendors who provide modernization solutions for federal financial systems.
While the Core Financial Management Solutions subgroup is currently closed, companies can still pursue any of the other three open subgroups within SIN 518210FM. You can learn more about the Financial Management Quality Service Management Office (FM QSMO) Core Financial Management (FM) Solutions SIN 518210FM here.

- Temporarily Closed: Core Financial Management Solutions (Core FS)

What Happens Next
GSA plans “to further consider its needs and the acquisition strategy associated with the Core FS Subgroup of SIN 518210FM.” Following the completion of their analysis and any needed updates, GSA does intend to reopen the Core FS subgroup.
