Two business training sessions that cover the General Services Administration (GSA) will be conducted by the Business Procurement Assistance Center (BPAC) at Moraine Park Technical College’s West Bend campus on Thursday, Feb. 12. 


The United States government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world. Knowing how to sell in this vast federal market can be important in uncertain economic times. Currently, more and more federal buyers are turning to General Services Administration as a method to buy goods and services.   


“General Services Administration (GSA) Introduction to Multiple Award Schedules” will be held from 9 to 11:30 a.m., followed by “GSA Multiple Award Schedules – Responding to Requirements” from 1 to 3:30 p.m.   


“General Services Administration (GSA) Introduction to Multiple Award Schedules” will help your business decide whether to pursue a GSA contract. If you currently have sales success in the commercial marketplace and want to pursue expanded sales in the federal government, GSA might be the answer. Learn which products/services are available under GSA contract, how to identify your company’s proper schedule and how to locate and download a solicitation. 


“GSA Multiple Awards Schedule – Responding to Requirements” focuses on how to complete the solicitation paperwork. You will receive specialized guidance organizing and positioning your company for a contract award.
