Mark Lee, assistant commissioner of the FAS Office of Policy & Compliance at GSA, discusses the agency’s schedule changes and why it’s one of the “biggest improvements” ever made to the acquisition program


The General Services Administration’s Order-Level Materials Initiative is a major change to the agencies purchasing schedules. The measure allows agencies to acquire materials outside of more established contracts, and creates a bridge between the schedules and indefinite delivery contracts. In a blog post by Mark Lee, assistant commissioner of the FAS Office of Policy & Compliance at GSA, called the initiative “one of the biggest improvements to its Schedules Program since its creation.”   “We did a lot of listening to our industry partners and customers in crafting the rule, but now it’s available,” Lee told Government Matters. It’s a big deal because, one, it’s going to reduce duplication across the government, and that saves industry their scarce bid and proposal dollars. And then for our customers, they’re going to be able to buy the solutions they need. They can do that through one procurement action instead of two.”
