GSA Publishes New Final Rule Incorporating Order-Level Materials into Schedules Program
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has issued a final General Services Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) rule to incorporate Order-Level Materials (OLMs), also known as Other Direct Costs (ODCs), into the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program. This rule will make it easier for customer agencies to buy, and industry partners to provide, complete procurement solutions through the MAS program while ensuring excellent value for taxpayer dollars.
This change to the Schedules program provides agencies the flexibility to easily acquire OLMs, creating consistency between the MAS program and other established indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts. Providing agencies with additional flexibility through MAS will result in more consistent application of policies and better value for customer agencies, industry partners and taxpayers.
