Our team of professionals will assist you through the entire process of securing a GSA Schedule. Working with our clients, we assess eligibility, developing competitive pricing strategies, prepare complete and accurate Offers and negotiation terms for final award.
Securing a GSA Contract is an important decision that requires a thorough understanding of your company’s primary motivations and available resources. The process of securing this valuable contract is incredibly detailed. You will be vetted to demonstrate your past performance and your pricing must meet the definition of “fair and reasonable”. Having the GSA Star Logo is a clear sign that your company is of the highest caliber and offers the best value to the Government. GSA Vendor Partners sell their products and services to government agencies using the GSA Schedule in a fraction of the time that is required for other avenues.
We will provide you with the information to ensure your company can compete with current contractors on GSA Schedules. This information includes:
Proper SIN Selection
Prepare Your GSA Offer
Conceptual Contracting will prepare your GSA Offer which is a detailed gathering of information that will be submitted according to the Solicitation and submitted electronically through E-Offer, a web-based submission website. Each Solicitation has different requirements as to mandatory information and the correct format used to present it. This process is critical and, if done incorrectly, will cost your company valuable time in securing your GSA Award. The Solicitation can sometimes be unclear as to the exact requirements. The Solicitation is updated or “Refreshed” at least annually. Offers must be submitted and identified as compliant with the latest Refresh.
The Review Process
Upon electronic submission of your proposal through the E-Offer system, it is assigned to a Contracting Specialist for a thorough review. The Contracting Specialist can require additional information or make a request for clarifications to your proposal. The review process can take up to 12 months for completion. We will respond promptly and accurately to any requests for clarification that are issued.
GSA Contract Negotiation
Upon the completion of the review process, your Contracting Officer will schedule a negotiation session. The purpose of this session is to ensure the Federal Government, through the GSA Schedules Program, is receiving the best possible pricing structure for the products/services offered. Conceptual Contracting will actively participate in this important phase.
Final Proposal Revision
After the Review and Negotiation phases are both complete, Conceptual Contracting will prepare the Final Proposal Revision (FPR). This Proposal will encapsulate the entire submission process including revisions made during negotiations.
GSA Contract Award!
Upon receipt of your contract number, you may begin selling your products and/or services from your Schedule. There are several post-award activities that are necessary for the performance of your Contract. Conceptual Contracting will complete the proper registrations and provide you with all information required to begin using your contract.

- E-Buy Registration
