Updates and Reminders Regarding the Professional Services Schedule Migration
The General Services Administration (GSA) is continuing to work with vendors to migrate them into the newly formed Professional Services Schedule (PSS) formerly referred to as the Consolidated Schedule (00CORP) with the goal of having the project completed by October 1, 2015. Offers that have been submitted on existing stand- alone schedules are still being processed. Offers submitted after October 1st will be processed under the Consolidated Schedule.
If you do not currently have a Professional Services Schedule contract, you should submit your offer through the Consolidated Schedule (00CORP). If you have an existing contract and want to expand your offerings, you should wait until the PSS migration is completed in October to request a modification to your contract. The notable benefit of the consolidated PSS is that you will not have to submit a separate contract offer to expand your current professional service offerings.
Vendors should anticipate additional wait times for offer reviews (expect approximately 30-45 days). However, as the migration continues, the PSS consolidation will offer increased customer support for vendors; such as online training and customer accessibility, webinars, and additional simplifications to the current contracting process.
The Following Schedules are Impacted
- Schedule 520 Financial and Business Solutions (FABS)
- Schedule 541 Advertising and Integrated Marketing Services (AIMS)
