GSA Global Supply™ Overview
GSA Global Supply's New Business Model
GSA Global Supply is shifting to a new business model that features greater reliance on commercial partners to fulfill customer requisitions. The change will result in faster delivery and lower operating costs, two clear benefits for customers worldwide. By leveraging the facilities and expertise of the private sector, GSA Global Supply is able to move approximately 4,000 National Stock Numbers (NSNs) to industry partners and to use their resources to fulfill customer requisitions.
At the same time, GSA is incrementally upgrading its information technology systems to provide greater functionality and visibility. As part of its comprehensive Supply Transformation, GSA is partnering with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) on a number of projects intended to help both agencies provide efficient, effective service to customers. One element of this collaboration calls for the reassignment of select NSNs from GSA to DLA. Since many of these items are used primarily by DoD customers, the transition should result in simpler acquisition, management and distribution.
The table below includes a notice regarding the planned closure of GSA's Western and Eastern Distribution Centers, as well as a Memorandum of Agreement between GSA and DLA outlining the transfer of products in Federal Supply Group 80 (paints, sealants and adhesives). If you have questions about GSA's supply program changes, you can send those to GSAsupply@gsa.gov. Note that a similar table of reference documents is available regarding the transfer of GSA's Wildland Fire program to DLA.

GSA Global Supply. Your Mission. Your Way.
* Under the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) program, GSA has negotiated Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA’s) to provide extra savings on office supplies. FSSI gives users an easy way to purchase office supplies, while assuring that agencies leverage the government’s buying power on the most commonly purchased items.
FSSI customers get complete transaction level data, tiered volume discounts, compliance with the Trade Agreements Act, AbilityOne requirements, and capability to meet socio-econonic and sustainability goals. Many agencies have polices for mandatory or preferred use of the FSSI Office Supplies BPAs.
