A good ecommerce site like yours is always looking for ways to cut costs and streamline processes, without sacrificing quality or accuracy. After all, the easier it is to make a sale, the more sales you can make in a day. General Services Administration (GSA) contracts are an invaluable resource for guaranteed prices, honest contracts, and a reliable sales process.
Not familiar with the General Services Administration? Well, you’re in the right place. Logicblock makes it easy for businesses like yours to make the most of GSA contracts. We start by making sure our customers and partners are educated, so let’s begin at the beginning.
What Is the GSA?
The General Services Administration, or GSA, is an independent agency of the Federal Government charged with managing the policies and procedures of federal agencies and offices. Basically, the GSA makes the rules that manage federal property and government agencies.
So, What’s A GSA Contract?
GSA contracts are a means of streamlining the procurement process for government agencies. These contracts are established by the GSA and are intended to provide a centralized marketplace where eligible buyers can purchase goods and services from pre-approved vendors at pre-negotiated prices.
GSA contracts cover a wide range of goods and services, including everything from office supplies and office furniture to IT equipment and software. In order to be awarded a GSA contract, vendors must go through a rigorous vetting process that includes a review of their financial stability, past performance, and compliance with federal regulations.
GSA Contract Benefits
Having a GSA contract heightens your online store’s visibility with government agencies and customers, both of whom have access to the GSA marketplace. Your products will be listed on the GSA website, and you can also apply to be featured in GSA’s Online Catalog, giving you added exposure.
Having a GSA contract shows potential customers that your business is legitimate and trustworthy. The GSA is a well-known government agency and having a contract with them is seen as an endorsement of your store’s quality and reputation. Even non-government organizations will recognize your GSA contract
Prices Set in Stone
With the set prices that GSA contracts require, big box stores can’t underbid the little guy, and the customer always gets the best price. This is perhaps the greatest equalizer in the GSA’s toolbox, making it possible for businesses of any size to compete in the marketplace.
As beneficial as GSA contracts can be, they come with their own set of challenges, particularly for newcomers. At Logicblock we are ready, willing, and eager to apply our extensive industry knowledge to work, supporting you as you pursue, secure, and fulfill your GSA contracts.
