General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule Contracting for In-House Counsel

The GSA Schedule, including the delegated VA Schedules, is a $50 billion contracting program that all federal agencies use to acquire commercial services and products. These multiple year, government-wide contracts cover professional services, information technology, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and a vast array of commercial products.

Schedule contracts offer a huge market opportunity. Thousands of companies including both Fortune 500 companies and a vast number of small businesses have GSA/VA Schedule contracts. All federal agencies, and in some instances state agencies, can place orders against the contracts.

Of particular interest to in-house counsel, Schedule contracts have a pricing methodology, and disclosure requirements that are unique in federal government contracting. The contracts provisions must be correctly understood, managed and monitored to assure that your company realizes anticipated profits. Failure to do so can result in significant monetary, administrative, civil and even criminal penalties.

This seminar will provide information and tools to help you understand the GSA/VA Schedule contracting program and provide insightful legal advice to your in-house client.

End: September 17, 2014 4:00 pm
Venue: McKenna Long and Aldridge LLP

Announcing the Coalition’s 35th Anniversary Black Tie Gala, Excellence in Partnership (EIP) Awards and Fall Training Conference

Mark your calendars! The Coalition’s 35th Anniversary Gala and EIP Awards will be held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center at 1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC on the evening of November 5th. This seemed to be a natural fit for us as the Reagan Building is of course owned by the U.S. General Services Administration. It is the first and only federal building designated for public and private use and is mandated by Congress to bring together the country’s best public and private resources to create a national forum for the advancement of trade. The evening’s events will include a reception, silent auction, keynote speaker, and our 15th Annual Excellence in Partnership (EIP) Awards.

Start: November 5, 2014 7:00 pm
End: November 6, 2014 5:00 pm
