Cybersecurity services soon will be available under new common provisions of the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Program administered by the General Services Administration (GSA). The MAS Program is the primary means to sell commercial products and services to federal agencies.
GSA announced the new provisions this week. In mid-August 2016, GSA issued a draft solicitation and engaged in industry outreach to explain the changes to the current ordering system, in which companies sell such services under a variety of provisions. GSA is now rolling out the new process, which will be available for use in October 2016. These changes will facilitate agency ordering of critical cybersecurity services.
