GSA Seeks Industry Input on Plan to Create New Maintenance, Repair, Operations SINs

The General Services Administration wants industry feedback on a plan to create one or more special item numbers for maintenance, repair and operations services under the agency’s 51V Schedule procurement vehicle.

GSA said Monday in a FedBizOpps notice that the planned SIN/s are intended to address federal civilian and Defense Department agency needs for MRO offerings as well as reduce contract or catalog duplication for customers and vendors.

The SIN/s will also work to increase small business participation in the procurement process; expand selection of MRO items beyond the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative’s purchasing channel; and obtain lower prices on MRO offerings.

Interested vendors can submit responses through May 3.
