A GSA Schedule is a GWAC or Governmentwide Acquisition Contract which has a five year duration with up to three additional five year extensions. The federal vendor must prove they have the financial stability in order to complete federal contracts and offer the federal government the lowest price they have offered their goods and services for a particular quantity. In return the federal supplier gains a method that greatly reduces red-tape and for most contract holders increases their sales volume.
