Why would a business enroll in the GSA Program (GSAP) over getting regular GSA registration?
Getting on a GSA schedule is a big deal. It's a lot of time and resources for a potentially huge payout. Even the GSA estimates that businesses can spend from $80,000 to $130,000 just to get on the schedule. This is an opportunity that you cannot afford to lose.
That's why US Federal Contractor Registration developed the GSAP.
What's At Risk?
When you get on a GSA schedule, you're on there for 20 years...if everything goes smoothly. In your first two years, you are required to make at least $25,000 in sales through the schedule. If you don't, then you're out.
"How is that? Isn't a GSA schedule a ticket to making crazy sales with little effort?"
Essentially, a GSA schedule is like online shopping for the U.S. government. And yes, there are cases in which Uncle Sam loves a product or service so much, that a company's sales blow up once they get on the schedule. That is the reality for a few, but not for most businesses. You need to put in some extra effort to keep your GSA schedule.
Protecting Your Investment With GSAP
With a GSA schedule, there's so much to gain for your business as a whole. If you don't reach those goals of $25,000 per year, all that time and effort was for nothing. You could be in an even worse position than before you started. Here is how USFCR's GSAP sets you up and keeps you on the schedule.
