GSA Makes Combined MRO and Jan/San Awards

GSA Makes Combined MRO and Jan/San Awards

The US General Services Administration (GSA) has named 30 suppliers to its new Maintenance Repair Facility Supplies (MRFS) purchasing channel, a category that accounts for $2.8 billion in federal government spending.

The adoption of the MRFS channel combines GSA’s previous MRO and jan/san categories into one programme in an effort to streamline the purchasing process. Products include hand and power tools, paints, and a wide range of cleaning equipment and products.

30 blanket purchase agreements (BPA) have been made under the GSA’s Multiple Awards Schedules numbers 51V, 73 and 75, with all but four of the awardees being small businesses.

The new BPA holders include independent dealers Supply Chimp and Supplies Now, and large resellers such as Grainger and MSC. A full list of the awardees can be found here. — (OPI)
