MAS UPDATE: GSA Issues Mass Modification for Current Schedule Contractors
We are pleased to announce that today GSA began issuing a Mass Modification (Mass Mod) to current Schedule contractors. The Mass Mod will update current contracts to conform with the terms and conditions of the new consolidated Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) that was released on Oct. 1, 2019. Contractors must accept this Mass Mod by July 31, 2020 - failure to do so will result in their offerings no longer being accessible on GSA eTools. Current contracts will be moved to GSA’s new single Schedule solicitation for products, services, and solutions after the Mass Mod is accepted.
MAS Modification Final Guidance and Findings Now Available
We are pleased to announce that the MAS Modification Guidance is now final and ready for use by contractors that have accepted the MAS Consolidation Mass Mod. Please find a copy of the guide & its templates on the MAS Contract Requirements and Modification Guidance page on GSA.gov.

OMB AND THE GOVERNMENT-WIDE CATEGORY MANAGEMENT PMO: HOSTING A LEARNING AND INFORMATION SESSION FOR INDUSTRY!
The Office of Management and Budget and the Government-wide Category Management Program Management Office are hosting a learning and information session for industry! Many of the data tools and dashboards used for government-wide category management -- previously available only to government users --now are available to the public. These are the same tools and dashboards the federal acquisition workforce uses, and we’ve recently made several improvements to make it even easier to perform market research and track progress toward category management goals.
