GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) (Formerly IT Schedule 70) (GS-35F-0024R)

We are pleased to offer our services to government clients through our GSA MAS (formerly IT Schedule 70) contract.  Our price list can be found at GSAAdvantage.gov under GS-35F-0024R, or click to download a PDF version: BPS GSA FSS Schedule Pricelist 2019-2024.

GSA MAS is the largest and most widely used federal contract vehicle for IT services. It offers the largest selection of vendors and helps streamline acquisitions through standardized terms and on-line RFQs. Federal buyers simply define the work scope (with an SOW, PWS, or SOO), search for vendors on GSA Advantage (e.g., Search > Services > "PMO Support"), issue an RFQ using an eBuy template, evaluate responses, and make an award. Detailed instructions can be found on the GSA website. Note that Schedule 70 was recently consolidated into the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS), but the ordering procedures are the same. When ordering, use the special item number (SIN) for IT Professional Services (54151S, formerly 152-51). Common NAICS codes for IT services are 541512 (Systems Design), 541511 (Programming), 541611 (Management Consulting), and 541519 (Other Computer Related Services).

BPS delivers solutions on both a fixed-price and time-and-materials basis.  Our substantial experience and structured cost estimation approach ensures that projects are delivered within estimated budgets and schedules: in our entire history we have never exceeded the budgeted cost on any contract.
