Strategic Consulting Solutions, Inc.


GSA Government Contracting Seminar

On April 22, 2015, join us as Jan Zeigler of the General Services Administration (GSA) teaches a seminar about GSA government contracting in 2015.

Strategic Consulting Solutions wants to show our support for the TSBDC and UT PTAC by promoting and sharing information about the event (though this is not an SCS event).  The GSA is an independent agency of the United States Government, established in 1949 to help manage and support the basic functions of federal agencies. Their support includes purchasing a broad range of goods and services for the federal government (including products and communications for U.S. government offices), providing transportation and office spaces to Federal employees, developing government-wide cost-minimizing policies, and managing other government-wide tasks and contracts

For government contractors and commercial companies seeking to do business with the government, the GSA Schedules program is a great way to establish long-term government contracting opportunities. With approximately $50 billion a year in spending or 10% of overall federal procurement spending, the GSA Schedule program oversees the purchases a broad range of goods and services, as well as government acquisitions and procurements, at volume discount pricing.

GSA Schedules have become increasing popular because many contracting officers, federal purchasers, and vendors find them very quick and easy to use. However, it’s still important to be prepared and knowledgable about your efforts in this highly competitive marketplace. Learn more about getting on the GSA Schedule, and be sure to join us April 22, 2015 as America’s Small Business Development Center and University of Tennessee’s Procurement Technical Assistance Center host a three hour presentation on “U.S. General Services Administration and Government Contracting in 2015.” Presented by Jan Zeigler (GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, Customer Service Director, serving Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina), this FREE seminar will cover:
