The General Service Administration is the purchasing agency of the federal government. Their goal is to leverage the high-volume purchasing of the U.S. Government to negotiate competitive prices from commercial vendors. GSA-approved companies are placed on a schedule (or catalogue) for federal purchasing agents to use when searching for vendors.
Arrow Enterprise Computing Solutions has been approved as a GSA-authorized information technology distributor (Schedule 70).
The GSA administers approximately 40 schedules and, according to their 2007 annual report, produced an estimated $35 billion in sales. In many cases, it is difficult to initiate business with federal, state and local governments without a GSA contract. The reason: When government purchasing agents place orders from a GSA contract, they are considered to have met federal regulations regarding competition, pricing and other requirements. This means that purchasing agents don’t have to go through this process on their own—saving them (and you) time, money and trouble.
As a distributor, Arrow ECS can offer vendor-authorized VARs the opportunity to become a dealer on the Arrow ECS GSA schedule. Dealers will gain access to sell products and services to federal, state and local government agencies through the GSA process. Once a dealer, your business can enjoy:
Access to the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world—the U.S. Government
Improved margins for driving federal, state and local government sales
Protection on leads that you are responsible for initiating and driving
Marketing opportunities to corresponding government agencies across the country
Ability to leverage your existing state and local government customer base.
