GSA adds schedules course to online training program

As a part of its efforts to improve contracting, the General Services Administration today updated its online training course for the Federal Supply Service.

The course, called Using GSA Schedules-Customers, helps federal employees make sure they meet federal acquisition regulations, especially new ones.

The revamped course is a part of the Get It Right Campaign GSA started last summer to improve its acquisition processes See GCN Story.

The course presents nine lessons and interactive exercises to help contracting officers and federal managers understand procurement rules.

GSA also put online two checklists for GSA schedule orders'one for contracts that require a statement of work and one for those that do not. The checklists help contracting officers make sure they are meeting all the competition and other schedule requirements, such as performance and termination clauses. The checklists offer links to a more in-depth chart to help answer questions.

The courses are free of charge and can be found at www.fsstraining.gsa.gov.
