While managing schedule contracts for the last 19 years, we’ve built our business systems around fulfilling GSA requirements and by listening to the needs of our federal contractor customers.  We change our systems and service offering often, anticipating contractor needs as technology and requirements warrant.

We don’t give GSA seminars. We manage GSA contracts. If you’d like to talk about GSA schedules, we are happy to speak with you at no charge. Call me on 301 652-7410. If something is bothering you about GSA, see the "GSA Reform" pages.

Our current GSA schedule contractor accounts range from small to large businesses, representing manufacturers, service providers, distributors and cooperatives, large-account resellers to one- and two-man shops offering Professional Services. Some contracts do not require a lot of attention and maintenance, like most Services contracts, yet others do.  We offer a variety of business arrangements from hourly assistance to monthly retainer plans.  For most contractors on a monthly retainer plan, we offer a flat rate of $300-$500 per month, per contract, (translating to roughly 5 to 8 hours per month) to keep you informed and your contract up-to-date in continuous compliance.

  • Contract Maintenance Service,  If you already have a GSA schedule and need help.

    For GSA Schedule Contractors needing to post Awarded GSA Contract pricing on the GSA Advantage! system, we offer one-time and monthly file maintenance upload services.

    Consider FBBS and take advantage of our timely, personal service. We represent you to GSA. We prepare and negotiate new offers and manage existing contracts.  A majority of our customers have been with us for over five years; some have been with us for 10 years.    We don’t burn ‘em and turn ‘em; we provide assistance.

    E-Mods.  In many GSA schedule divisions, GSA introduced an e-Mod system. Electronic Contract Modification system.  The majority of e-Mods are generated by GSA and you have to accept them or give up your contract.  Others can be generated by the contractor to change government pricing for certain hardware items.  Not all e-mods generated by GSA affect your contract, but you still have to manage, accept, and administer them.  If you need help taking care of e-Mods or any other contract modifications, let us know.  We can accept/send e-mods on your behalf and send you all the relevant hard copy documentation for your files.  We can/will revise your Authorized Government Pricelist, per all awarded modifications, as needed.

    Some firms contact us to help them obtain a GSA schedule, others to help them manage a schedule they already have, and many more to solve compliance issues; like GSA Advantage uploads and e-Mod acceptance. For more information check out our website.  For fun,  Check out our jingle.
