GSA Seeks to Phase Out 8,000 ‘Obsolete' Contracts

June 7, 2012

The days of buying typewriters and trophies through the General Services Administration's schedules are numbered.

GSA on Thursday announced a new "demand-based model" for its multiple award schedule program that it hopes will eventually phase out more than 8,000 contracts it identified as obsolete to save more than $24 million a year.

GSA said it will stop adding new contractors to those schedules as the first step toward streamlining its contracts, and after a year, it will review the schedules to see if there is demand for them. GSA plans to eliminate contract agreements that are rarely or never used.
