GSA Schedule Consulting Support
Through a strategic partnership, Polished can offer companies assistance with their GSA Schedule applications. Our partner has proven to cut through the confusion and save time reviewing or completing the respective applications.
OPTION 1) GSA Schedule Review: For those companies that have already completed their schedule offer and have it ready to the point of submission, we offer a comprehensive one-time quality control review of your offer package to ensure compliance with solicitation requirements, and to provide feedback and recommendations to best position the offer to be approved. We are able to identify what documentation is missing from your offer, and to highlight the documentation that is incomplete or incorrect and in need of revision. Once review is completed and we provide our comments/feedback on our developed checklist, we then schedule a teleconference with your team once the review is complete to explain our comments/feedback and to answer any of your GSA Schedule related questions to help improve your offer.
OPTION 2) GSA Schedule Guidance To Submission: In this capacity we serve as your team’s subject matter expert to guide you the process of completing your offer, while providing you with checklists, templates and tools to help you successfully complete the proposal package to include a step by step walk-through of how to respond, upload and submit your offer package. We also work to verify that the information and documentation being submitted is accurate and complete. Under this package, the consultant serves as a guide to assist the client through the offer submission process, which is an ideal solution for those firms that would like to take a “hands-on” approach to completing the necessary paperwork. Company personnel must purchase a digital certificate from GSA approved vendor.
OPTION 3) GSA Schedule Turnkey Completion Through Award: In this capacity we help expedite the submission process by completing the offer package on your behalf, thereby minimizing the amount of time and resources required by your company to complete the proposal offer. Our team will offer a complete turnkey solution by completing all of the required documentation (to include technical writing, pricing documentation, and past performance write ups), uploading and submitting the offer, and handling all post-offer submission negotiations and responsibilities to ensure the approval of your GSA Schedule offer (this includes completion of the FPR and upload of the terms and conditions pricelist via the SIP Program). Under this package, the consultant is responsible for the overall acceptance and approval of the GSA Schedule offer, and bears responsibility to make the required revisions and updates to the client’s offer until offer acceptance and award of schedule. Upon award of the schedule, the consultant shall provide a 1-2 hour training to the Ebuy and sales reporting system, along with providing guidance and tips regarding how to effectively market the company’s GSA Schedule.
