Doing Business with GSA – Introduction to GSA


THE GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION WAS ESTABLISHED
IN 1949 BY PRESIDENT HARRY S. TRUMAN TO STREAMLINE THE ADMINISTRATIVE WORK OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. WITHIN GSA, THE OFFICE OF SMALL BUSINESS UTILIZATION,
OR OSBU, ARE ADVOCATES AND PARTNERS WITH SMALL BUSINESSES LIKE YOURS. IT IS OUR MISSION AND COMMON GOAL TO HELP
YOU. WE HELP SMALL BUSINESSES FOR TWO REASONS,
BECAUSE IT’S GOOD FOR THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY AND IN MANY CASES IT’S REQUIRED
BY LAW. GSA COMPLIES WITH THE LEGAL REQUIREMENT BY
MAKING SURE THE MAXIMUM PRACTICABLE PERCENTAGE OF OUR PURCHASES GO TO SMALL BUSINESSES, WITH
ATTENTION TO FOUR SOCIO-ECONOMIC CATEGORIES: SMALL DISADVANTAGED BUSINESSES, WOMAN OWNED
SMALL BUSINESSES, SERVICE DISABLED VETERAN OWNED SMALL BUSINESS, AND HISTORICALLY UNDERUTILIZED
BUSINESS ZONES OR HUBZONES. GSA CONTINUES ITS MISSION THROUGH SMALL BUSINESSES
LIKE YOURS BY PROVIDING THE BEST VALUE IN GOODS AND SERVICES TO ALL FEDERAL AGENCIES. GSA OFFERS OUR FEDERAL CUSTOMERS AN EXPERIENCE
THAT: INCREASES OPPORTUNITIES WITH SMALL BUSINESSES, PROVIDES LEADERSHIP IN INNOVATION, ACHIEVES
BETTER VALUE AND SAVINGS, GIVES EXCELLENT SERVICE TO OUR PARTNERS, FURNISHES MORE SUSTAINABLE
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, AND BUILDS A STRONGER GSA. TODAY, WE DESIGN AND BUILD INNOVATIVE AND
SUSTAINABLE SPACES, PROVIDE MODERN TECHNOLOGY, AND INCREASE ACCESS TO THE GOODS AND SERVICES
OUR FEDERAL CUSTOMERS NEED THROUGH COST-EFFECTIVE, HIGH-QUALITY BUSINESSES. IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN DOING BUSINESS WITH
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THERE ARE SOME PRELIMINARY THINGS YOU’LL NEED TO DO: REGISTER YOUR
BUSINESS IN THE SYSTEM FOR AWARD MANAGEMENT AT SAM.GOV, WHERE YOU CAN ALSO FIND CURRENT
