Your Potential Customer Base

Your customer base includes organizations eligible to Use GSA Sources of Supply and Services (PDF, 648 KB) such as executive, military, and other federal agencies.

State and Local Governments
State and local governments can use IT Schedule 70 through Cooperative Purchasing, Disaster Recovery Purchasing, and Schedules.

GSA's Cooperative Purchasing Program allows state and local governments to purchase a variety of commercial supplies (products) and services under specific GSA Schedule contracts to save time and money, and meet their everyday needs and missions. It also allows them to access and purchase IT products and services, as well as law enforcement, security, first responder, marine craft equipment, alarm and signal systems, and special purpose clothing.

Requests For Quotations (RFQs)

  • eBuy - Government buyers can post a Request for Quote via eBuy, a component of GSA Advantage!®. Schedules contractors can submit quotes to any RFQ corresponding to the Schedule and Special Item Numbers (SINs) listed in their contract. eBuy is an excellent tool for finding new business. It is only available to contractors on a Schedule or on a Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC). Watch for orders or Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) here that can be set aside for small businesses.
  • FedBizOpps You can search for active federal opportunities on this site. Government buyers are required to post any open market procurements over $25,000 at FedBizOpps (excluding such vehicles as Schedules, GWACS, and orders under agency IDIQ contracts). FedBizOpps is not used for GSA Schedule buys, but it serves to inform interested companies about federal contracting opportunities.
