Attention GSA Schedule Holders – New Memo Temporarily Waives Requirements

March 12, 2021

To maintain the Government’s COVID-19 response, the General Services Administration (GSA) released a memorandum to GSA Schedule holders adding new COVID-related products and services. For COVID-related solutions, the order will temporarily waive the following requirements:

  • two years of corporate experience
  • one relevant project experience per Special Item Number (SIN)
  • two years of financial statements

According to the memo, “The COVID-19 pandemic has caused great disruption in supply chains and has caused an unprecedented level of demand for supplies, services, and solutions…..Realizing the importance of GSA’s responsibility to its customers and their efforts to support America’s response to COVID-19, GSA continues to seek ways to leverage industry capacity and innovation.”

GSA Schedule holders are encouraged to review any rejected offers or modifications for COVID-related solutions from the past 90 days to ensure offers match these requirements.  The memo is effective immediately and does not have an expiration date. It will remain until withdrawn by GSA.
