GSA eBuy Rolls Out August 2020 Update
On August 1st, 2020, the General Services Administration had rolled out an eBuy update that allows contractors to select subgroups to some popular SINs awarded on contract.
Customers are still able to release opportunities by GSA’s defined SIN and contractors who meet the criteria will receive them. Now that most SINs have been consolidated under the new GSA Schedule Multiple Award Schedule, these opportunities can also be filed under more precise subcategories that fall under select SINs.
Contractors are encouraged to view their profiles and further define their SIN’s subcategories for greater precision. Selecting (or de-selecting) subcategories should increase the likelihood that the contractor will receive an opportunity that is relevant the awarded products and services that are awarded under the GSA Schedule contract. Contractors should monitor the intake of opportunities to determine if the current subcategory selection meets their needs.
Customers are also able to include one or more of the following complimentary SINs to an opportunity: ANCILLARY, ANCRA, OLM, and 238910. This will allow contractors to include these items and services on an eBuy quote as appropriate. (check your contract for applicability).
And finally, GSA eBuy will no longer display GSA Legacy Schedules in eBuy. All contractors should have accepted the MAS Consolidation Mass Mod (A812), otherwise the eBuy account and other GSA Services may be subject to suspension until the mass mod has been accepted.
Contractors are able view/select subgroups by logging in to the GSA eBuy account. By clicking on the vendor profile, contractors will be able to see the “modify subgroups” button and will allow for subgroup management as shown in the table below.
