MAS Advisory Panel Urges Increased Competition And Transparency

March 24, 2010

The GSA Multiple Award Schedule Advisory Panel presented its Final Report to the new GSA Administrator on March 10, 2010, addressing five areas: price reduction clause and task/delivery order competition, price reasonableness, disclosure, contract type, and program evaluation and review. The Final Report recommends, inter alia, that the Price Reduction Clause be eliminated from services contracts and, in its place, procedures be implemented to obtain "meaningful competition" at the task order level.
