GSA's IT Acquisition Center Breaks Sales Record

Posted December 19, 2003

Sales were up again in fiscal year 2003 for GSA Schedule 70, a Multiple Award Schedule for the purchase of information technology products and services. The IT Acquisition Center, which manages Schedule 70, negotiates terms, conditions, and prices for more than 4,000 IT contracts. Agencies then work directly with those vendors.

Orders for IT acquisitions—large and small—contributed to another record-breaking sales year.

Acquisition professionals from the Center are available to provide (FREE) guidance and assistance in the use of GSA Multiple Award Schedules. If you are unfamiliar with recent changes to the Schedules program, contact the IT Acquisition Center. These changes are streamlining the acquisition process.
