On October 24, 2020, GSA’s Integrated Award Environment (IAE) will incorporate additions and revisions to Product Service Codes (PSCs). PSCs classify the products, services, and research and development items purchased by the federal government. They are used in collecting and analyzing data about federal procurements. IAE will carry out the following changes regarding the PSCs:
Activate 155 new research and development (R&D) PSCs while end-dating 721 R&D PSCs;
Activate 42 new information technology PSCs while end-dating 71 IT PSCs;
Activate two product codes–PSC 6835 (new) and PSC 6830 (revised);
Activate PSC Q901 Healthcare Environmental Cleaning, renamed from Aseptic Housekeeping Services.
These PSC changes will be deployed throughout the IAE systems. The PSC tables will be updated with the SAM.gov deployment and you will be able to select from the updated PSCs following the deployment. Agencies’ contract writing systems can incorporate the PSC changes following the FPDS-NG deployment. Both the SAM.gov and FPDS-NG.gov deployments will happen October 24, 2020.
The PSC application program interface (API), which provides third-party applications access to the PSC codes updates, is available now at https://beta.sam.gov/data-services to accommodate back-end database updates.
The PSC Manual (available at FPDS.gov → Worksite → PSC Manual) and other supporting documents will be updated and posted by October 30, 2020, to reflect these changes. The most recent version of the PSC Manual and supporting documentation can be found at https://www.acquisition.gov/PSC_Manual. Send all questions regarding the PSCs to PSC-Codes@gsa.gov.
