The General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) is planning to refresh all GSA Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) to incorporate provision and clause updates in April 2017. This update will align MAS solicitations and contracts with recent policy changes, including small business subcontracting improvements and updates to Non-Federal Entity access to Schedules, including under the Disaster Purchasing Program. These regulatory changes further codify the Non-Federal entity access authorized under law and previously implemented via policy in GSA Order 4800.2H (now 4800.2I) in June 2013. See the “Significant Changes” attachment for an overview of the planned changes.
GSA FAS will host a public webinar to provide interested parties an opportunity to learn about the planned changes and ask related questions. The webinar will be in a listen-only format with the ability for participants to type questions via an online chat function. Webinar information is provided below.
- Date: Wednesday, March 22, 2017

GSA FAS will issue a bilateral modification to incorporate the planned changes into existing contracts. MAS contractors will have 90 days to accept the mass modification.
