Educational Resources (Financial Solutions)
GSA offers information and education in various formats. These educational resources may be used for general background training, or to build a base of knowledge in a new subject area. There are also specific references created to explain and streamline the use of GSA offerings.
GSA maintains a free online training site with acquisition related training. The financial solutions courses available include courses on Using GSA Schedules and the Cooperative Purchasing Program. Access to the GSA Center for Acquisition Excellence requires online registration.
GSA operates a website that allows customers to order, free-of-charge, or view and download PDFs of publications. Users can conduct a keyword search or browse publications by areas of interest at GSA's Centralized Mailing List Service (CMLS). Some key publications available are:
- Multiple Award Schedules Desk Reference - Addresses in detail how to use GSA Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) in compliance with the Federal Acquisition Regulations.
Soon GSA will be attaching files including Statement of Work (SOW) language and other work products that are useful to the financial solutions community. These attachments can be used as reference or as work-saving tools.
