Sometimes we do not equate the government with efficiency, but the GSA (General Services Administration) of the Federal Government has been working to change that perception. The GSA is the premier acquisition tool of the United States Government, and its recent agreement with National Glazing Solutions demonstrates its commitment to efficiency and effective budgeting.
GSA & National Glazing Team-up
The GSA and National Glazing Solutions have entered into a win-win situation. How? National Glazing is the number 1 tint/window film company in America, handling 3M window tint, solar window film, safety & security window tint, energy efficient films/tints, custom printed glass films, and numerous other safety and security-oriented products. GSA has tapped-into their quality products/services at a great rate. But, GSA also does this with respect to other industries. Everybody wins.
GSA Schedules Assist Vendors & Small Businesses/Large Businesses
The GSA not only purchases the best products and services at great prices, but they are committed to assisting vendors and businesses (large companies and especially small businesses) with succeeding amid the government marketplace.
GSA Schedules are fast, easy, and effective contracting vehicles. The agency provides long-term contracts with companies to provide millions of items to governmental agencies at discount costs ($50 billion/year/10% of all Federal Government procurement).
Vendor Participation With GSA
Vendors wanting to be successful under the GSA Schedules Program need to take the proper steps to be productive in a competitive environment. The vendor’s time and financial investment are initially high (as is GSA’s investment in firms), but the sales quantity, distribution mechanism, and prestige are well-worth the efforts.
It is a matter of careful planning, accurate analysis, and proactive implementation to be a successful GSA contract holder under the GSA Schedules Program. Like National Glazing Solutions, it may well be that your organization can do business with the General Services Administration. Keep in mind that 80% of GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contractors are small businesses (representing 36% of sales).
The GSA constantly updates its offerings. One of National Glazing Solutions core growth strategies is to increase business by selling 3M window tint, Solar Gard, Madico safety shields, Blast mitigation films, and other items by working with the administration.
