As part of its project to consolidate all Multiple Award Schedule contracts into a single solicitation, GSA issued a second Request for Information yesterday seeking contractor input on proposed new large categories, subcategories and Special Item Numbers (SINs).  Realigning solutions on Schedule contracts to make it easier for customers to find what they need is a major part of the consolidation project. “Reorganizing our categories and consolidating our SINs is a big step toward our final goal of a single Schedule,” said GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service Commissioner Alan Thomas.  The agency is hoping to better align SIN’s with North American Industry Classification (NAIC’s) codes.  “We’ve worked to ensure the proposed new SINs make sense and are better aligned with the North American Industry Classification System codes. The feedback we receive from this RFI is an important building block for GSA’s new single MAS solicitation,” said MAS Program Management Office Director Stephanie Shutt.  The agency also appears to be going further in terms of what might constitute a large category of solutions and how those would, in turn, be divided into subcategories.  Comments on the RFI have a short turn-around time being due to GSA on July 12th.  Comments on the initial RFI covering consolidated contract clauses are due July 5th.  See more on the new RFI here:
