CHAMP: One of Many GSA Programs that helps agencies connect with the right vendor

After obtaining your GSA Schedule, finding government programs to participate in is critical to becoming a successful vendor. GSA’s Centralized Household Goods Traffic Management Program (CHAMP) is one example of a program created within GSA that help government agencies find the right vendors.

In order to aid federal civilian agencies in transporting goods, GSA created CHAMP to assist eligible relocating employees in moving household goods both within the United States and internationally from one duty station to another. Through CHAMP, GSA utilizes a variety of vendors to fill relocation and transportation needs. To participate in the CHAMP program, a GSA Schedule holder must be an approved Transportation Service Provider (TSP).

How to become an approved TSP?

GSA will evaluate you as a potential TSP based on a variety of factors including business experience, financials, and quality assurance.  GSA provides important instructions for the two scopes of work available which include:

  • Domestic: Relocations occurring within the contiguous US including Alaska and Canada.
  • International: Includes relocating anywhere within the domestic scope to an international country or movement between two international countries.

After applying to be a TSP, GSA will notify you of your approval within 60 days of receiving your application package.  Keep in mind that once approved as a TSP, you will be responsible to continually update your rates and respond to Request for Offers (RFO) issued by GSA.  A few months every year, there will be certain open filing periods where you may file your rates applicable to the scope of work for which you were approved.  You will only be able to pursue work within the scope you have submitted.

Furthermore, similar to how you market your GSA Schedule, as an approved TSP, targeting nearby agencies about your ability to provide your services through CHAMP is critical.  These agencies are the ones that will reach out to you for work, not GSA, so it is important to get your information in front of them.

The recent approval of NVOAD to purchase from GSA Schedules, and programs like CHAMP will eventually help GSA increase the number of sales that goes through GSA Schedules.  Chances are that the easier it is for Federal buyers to find what they need, the more likely they will continue to use GSA- which is good news for all GSA Schedule holders.
