On September 14, the General Services Administration (GSA) announced a temporary suspension of the eOffer/eMod system for its Region 10 office. Region 10 handles the MOBIS, PES, FABS, AIMS, Logworld, Environmental, and Language Schedule contracts. These contracts are being transitioned over to the Professional Services Schedule (PSS), effective October 1. For more information on this process and important caveats for certain existing contract holders, please see our previous Fed Point blog and Q&A.
This temporary suspension will impact new awards, contract modifications, and contract options. Kathy Jocoy, GSA’s Project Manager for the Professional Services Schedule, confirmed to Aronson that affected contractors may still submit modifications through GSA’s eMod system and the modification will still be reviewed and evaluated. The suspension only affects GSA personnel’s ability to upload into the system in order to process modification, offer and option awards.
Since GSA-initiated mandatory modifications are handled in a different system, the temporary suspension will not impact the current round of mass mods, released September 3-4, relating to switching non-migrated contracts over to the PSS. GSA is encouraging contractors to “review and accept the recent mass modifications as soon as possible.” Additionally, the suspension does not affect “any firm who already has an 00CORP contract. The offers, modifications and options for the 00CORP Schedule will continue without interruption.”
For anyone with lingering questions regarding the upcoming PSS transition, GSA will be hosting a two-hour webinar on September 23, 2015 at 1:00pm (EDT). Find out more on how to attend this critical webinar by visiting the Professional Services Category group on GSA Interact.
