The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has published a final General Services Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) rule to capture transactional data on procurements across all of its Federal Supply Schedules (FSS) contracts or Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contracts, and Governmentwide Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contracts, including Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs). The Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) Rule requires vendors to electronically report the price the federal government paid for an item or service purchased through GSA acquisition vehicles. The rule supports the governmentwide category management initiatives by producing market intelligence that GSA and its partner agencies can use to make smarter acquisition decisions and save even more taxpayer dollars.
As part of the strategic implementation of the rule across all GSA contracts, the agency will introduce the transactional data reporting requirement with a pilot of select products and services in the Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) program. This pilot will be introduced in a phased approach.
The pilot Schedules and SINs are (in rollout order):
|58 I||Professional Audio/Video||All||Products|
|72||Furnishings & Floor Coverings||All||Products|
|03FAC||Facilities Maintenance & Management||All||Services|
|73||Food Service, Hospitality, Cleaning Equipment||All||Products|
|00CORP||Professional Services Schedule (PSS)||Professional Engineering Services SINs||Services|
TDR supports MAS Transformation’s vision, which is to provide our stakeholders with a MAS program that addresses current market forces and provides government with a streamlined, value-based contracting solution that continues to save time and money well into the future.
*GSA will be posting updates on TDR implementation and the rollout schedule, along with other important information like FAQ documents, on the MAS Interact page.*
