Contracting with CP Marine Through GSA MAS Schedules

GSA Schedules are a convenient, effective option for both buyers and sellers. Buyers enjoy simplified ordering procedures and reduced prices, while sellers can connect with federal buyers quickly and easily. Schedules support compliance but also allow for flexibility.

Benefits for Buyers:

  • Negotiated contract ceiling prices
  • Opportunities for discounts at the order level
  • Single contracting vehicle to fulfill complex or ongoing needs and reduce overall contract awards and administration
  • Less administrative time and contract documentation, since the master contract is managed by GSA
  • Socioeconomic credit for orders awarded to small business and other socioeconomic categories

About GSA Schedules

Schedules, also known as Federal Supply Schedules, and Multiple Award Schedules (MAS), are long-term government-wide contracts with commercial companies that provide access to millions of commercial products and services at fair and reasonable prices to the government. Schedules make buying easy and efficient with the use of modern technology to connect government buyers and industry.

Schedule policy and procedures are guided by two major governing regulatory documents:

  • Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) – Pursuant to 41 U.S.C. 152(3), FAR Part 38 prescribes policies and procedures that GSA must follow in managing the Schedules program. FAR Subpart 8.4 prescribes ordering procedures for federal agencies when placing orders for supplies and services under Schedules.
  • General Services Administration Acquisition Manual (GSAM) – GSAM covers GSA acquisition policies and practices.

Visit the Buyer and Seller pages for additional information on how these regulations and policies guide your Schedule experience.
