What is GSA?
Discover GSA and its many benefits to government organizations.
When investing in contract management software, discuss with your chosen provider the option of purchasing through the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). GSA provides eligible agencies (often government) with the option to purchase products and services, such as contract management software, through a schedule, which is an approved and maintained contract through GSA. Using this method to purchase contract management software eliminates the need for negotiations and makes the purchasing process much more efficient for all parties involved.
When purchasing contract management software through GSA, the eligible buyer is offered a great value and more convenient process, eliminating back-and-forth negotiations. These organizations can then focus on getting the products and services they need fast to implement better processes and services to the public as soon as possible.
Who Can Buy Through GSA?
Determine if You’re Eligible to Purchase through GSA Schedules.
Organizations, including federal agencies, qualified nonprofits, and many state and local governments, can purchase contract management software through GSA Schedule 70. To find out if you’re eligible, you can always submit an eligibility request to the Office of Government-wide Policy.
What are the Benefits of Purchasing Contract Management Software Through GSA?
Purchasing Through GSA May be the Right Choice for Your Organization.
No Negotiation or Contract Needed
Negotiations involving contract amendments and approvals can absorb valuable time. These negotiations can be skipped with GSA, as the contract has already been approved and set so there is no negotiation needed. A PO is all you need to get started. For organizations who are considering time as a factor when investing in contract management software, purchasing through GSA may be the best option for you.
Better Value for Your Organization
In some cases, GSA may be the better value and choice for your organization. GSA states that it, “negotiates leases that are more than 10 percent below market rates, on average.” Government agencies and other GSA-approved organizations can often receive an impressive value and faster purchasing process with GSA, leaving them to focus on the functionality and implementation process to get started using the software fast. Organizations should take advantage of the opportunity to purchase contract management software through GSA, given the benefits it provides.
