JanSan and MRO FSSI RFQs will be for BPAs covering three government channels, starting with Purchasing




Purchasing Channel

Requisition Channel

Fourth Party Logistics (4PL) via GSA Global Supply Channel

(MRO Only)

Past FSSI solutions only addressed the Purchasing Channel, where the next generation solutions aim to bring government spend under management across all three channels

Purchasing channel is largest of three channels, and allows customers to purchase directly from vendors

  • Government customers purchase directly from vendors

  • Covers traditional purchase methods such as purchase orders and purchase card buys within the continental U.S.

  • Many orders are placed through eCommerce platforms such as GSA Advantage! And DoD Emall

  • Largest of the three channels at 70% to 80% of total addressable spend

  • Presents opportunity for increasing small business spend

  • This channel was the exclusive focus of OS2

GSAs requisition model entails a specific set of unique requirements for vendors to successfully participate

  • The requisition channel covers mainly DoD orders that are fulfilled through GSA Global Supply

  • Requisition order fulfillment requires advanced e-commerce capabilities and seamless integration with GSA IT systems

    • E-commerce systems must fully align and link to GSA’s

    • Extensive testing is required to ensure that all orders are transmitted and received, and that no data elements are dropped

    • Use of National Stock Numbers (NSNs) is critical to ensure zero manual touch points for order processing

    • Other custom requirements exist, including unique marking, packing, labeling requirements, and many more

The “4PL” channel addresses the needs of customers who require a full on-site store

Overview of “4PL”

Considerations for FSSI

  • 4PL solution addresses requirements of GSA customers who operate on-site store (mostly on military installations)

  • Applicable to MRO only

  • Customer agencies provide space (or virtual equivalent.), GSA sets up a contract arrangement, and the vendor operates a mini-store

  • Vendor owns and manages the on-site inventory and ensures delivery

  • Cost savings accrue to vendors from GSA working with them to standardize inventory on site

  • Cost savings accrue to GSA because GSA does not take title to the merchandise

  • To date, this work has been performed by large businesses, given the scale requirements

The remainder of the presentation will focus on the purchasing channel

For JanSan, a total of 5 Categories are proposed

JanSan Categories

Cleaning Compounds & Related Dispensers

Non-Motorized Cleaning Equipment & Waste Collection Supplies

Paper Products & Related Dispensers

Motorized Floor Cleaning Equipment

Motorized Laundry Cleaning Equipment

Each Category will include set-asides for small businesses

For JanSan, a total of 15 BPAs are proposed, with 8 socio-economic set-asides


  • Small business set-asides represent almost half of all proposed JanSan BPAs

  • The goal is to increase small business participation within JanSan compared to status quo

For MRO, a total of 5 Categories are also proposed

MRO Categories


Tools &Tool Cabinets

Paints & Finishes

Portable Heating & Cooling

Electrical & Power

Each Category will include set-asides for small businesses

For MRO, a total of 15 BPAs are proposed, with 9 socio-economic set-asides


  • Small business set-asides represent over half of all proposed MRO BPAs

  • The goal is to increase small business participation within MRO compared to status quo

BPAs rely on market basket approach for vendor evaluation and category representation




Market Basket Created

Vendors Submit Quotes on Categories

Path to BPA Establishment

  • Designed to represent Federal market purchases in the category

    • Top high-spend products

    • Additional representative items

  • Market Basket items are categorized into Categories for vendors to submit quotes

  • Quote sheets are created for the Market Basket items within each Category

  • Several Technical Go/No Go Factors must be satisfactorily addressed by the vendor

  • Vendor prices are collected on quote sheets for each Category they choose

  • Qualifying vendors are then asked to apply the market basket average discount to all other non-market basket items within each Category

  • Pricing to be uploaded into GSA Advantage! and DOD EMALL

Vendor quotes on Market Basket items (provided on the quote sheet) are the basis for vendor evaluation

Example: Vendor XYZ, Inc. sells tools and would like to quote on the MRO Tools and Tool Cabinets Category


XYZ, Inc. quotes discounts off of their Schedule pricing for every core item

XYZ, Inc. is evaluated based on the prices quoted

  • In this example, XYZ, Inc. offered an average discount of about 9% off of their GSA MAS net prices, calculated based on their quotes for all products within the Category

  • If XYZ, Inc. is selected, the average discount will be applied to the entirety of their non-market basket items that are in scope with the given solution

Proposed JanSan/MRO aggregate volume thresholds

Aggregate Volume Discounts: Vendors will be asked to provide additional discounts that go into effect upon reaching a cumulative level of spend
