What GWAC Dominance Means to Your Business

Government-wide acquisition contracts (GWACs) are the dominant procurement vehicle in the federal market, so it is paramount that contractors understand the role GWACs play and how to use them to better serve your customers.

A core suite of GWACs shape agency acquisition strategies across the federal market and in some cases, the state and local sector as well.

Better pricing and ease of use are part of the equation but government customers also look to GWACs for help with supply chain security and greater visibility into and control of their IT spend. As a result, GWACs saw sales increase 10 percent to 20 percent in the just completed fiscal year.

At this Washington Technology Power Breakfast, government executives from the leading GWACs will discuss their 2020 plans, best practices for approved vendors, and the customer service that agency buyers are increasingly demanding.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Agency demand signals for 2020
  • Vendor on-ramps and off-ramps
  • GSA's new consolidated schedule
  • Small business opportunities
  • What Best in Class really means
  • What if you aren't a prime?
