GSA schedule sales take a dip

Sales going through the General Services Administration’s Schedules program took a dip in 2012, the second year in a row GSA has seen a drop, Federal Times is reporting.

According to data compiled for Federal Times by market research firm Deltek, schedule sales fell 2.9 percent in 2012 from 2011, and 3.5 percent in 2012 compared to 2010.

Exact figures for sales were not included in the story. The impact of sequestration also is still to be determined.

Yes, the market may be smaller, BUT, GSA FAS needs to move forward on providing the customer what they need which is allowing ODC's (Other Direct Costs)within the GSA Schedules Program! GSA is pushing their customers away to other gov't k's by not moving forward with a decision/leadership to add what is allowed in the current regulations. GSA says they are here to save the taxpayers money - in this case they are creating contract duplication and increasing the cost to the taxpayer. The Administrator has previously stated that ODC's would be available by the end of GFY13 - lets hope he delivers on his word. This change will save taxpayer dollars and increase GSA's market share beyond 17%.
