Chapter 20 - Joint and/or Cooperative and GSA Contract IT Procurements

20.2 Purchases from federal GSA (technology)

20.2.5 Voluntary use of schedules by suppliers

GSA IT suppliers have a five-day period in which to decline or accept an agency’s purchase order and will generally make this decision on two levels. First, on the contract level, they will decide which IT items they want to offer under the GSA joint and/or cooperative procurement contract and will enter into a mutual agreement with GSA to modify the contract and reflect their contract item list. Second, even after an existing contract is modified or a new contract awarded, a GSA IT supplier will retain the right to decline orders received from state or local government entities on a case-by-case basis. GSA IT suppliers may decline an order, for any reason, within a five-day period after receipt of the order; however, credit card orders must be declined within 24 hours.
