The General Services Administration has selected 43 small businesses to provide information technology products to agencies, GSA said Thursday.
Under the National Information Technology Commodity Program, companies provide agencies equipment such as mobile devices, computers and equipment for teleconferencing and data centers through blanket purchase agreements.
GSA sells nearly $1.7 billion annually in IT products, said Mary Davie, acting commissioner for GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service.
Awardees of the BPAs include women-owned, disadvantaged, veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses.
The agency designed the BPAs to provide agencies a centralized strategic sourcing avenue to purchase IT products and use automatic-tiered volume discounts, customer-negotiated discounts, vendor on-the-spot or point-of-sale discounts.
GSA recently awarded up to $2.5 billion in BPAs for cloud email services (click here for a list of awardees).
