GSA/MAS Schedule Categories

Where Does Your Business Fit?

The GSA/MAS Schedule program expedites the sale of products, services, and facilities to all U.S. Government agencies. Schedules provide an efficient way to connect government buyers to high-quality products. 

With the use of modern technologies, simplifying the acquisition process was the GSA’s primary goal of GSA/MAS Schedules. Like all government activities, though, it can be demanding to understand where your business fits. With the help of an expert at GSE, schedules offer an array of advantages to buyers and sellers, such as:

  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Fair and Reasonable Pricing
  • Fast Order Placement
  • Full Product and Broad Service Offerings
  • Recession-proof Income
