Isolated incident or shape of things to come? Applications for Schedule 75 (Office supplies contract) suspended…

Schedule 75 new applicants suspended – A GSA Sponsored BPA awarded to less than 5% of Schedule 75 vendors- here’s a link to the story:


GSA is looking for ways to leverage its buying power, apparently without considering ramifications for companies that have spend time and money getting Schedules. The award itself (to me) appears flawed, in that planned “levels” of discounts will not be supported by all of the BPA awardees.

Will this experiment be extended to other product categories? My guess is that it will, and probably not far down the road.

Please share your thoughts.

This and other topics will be addressed at the 7th Annual Summit on Selling Products to the Government –
