Solicitation No. 7FCM-C4-03-0073-B Schedule 73 Food Service, Hospitality, Cleaning Equipment and Supplies, Chemicals, and Services Synopsis: GSA MULTIPLE AWARD SCHEDULE (MAS) SOLICITATION. The Greater Southwest Acquisition Center, Fort Worth, Texas, is issuing a refreshed solicitation effective June 5, 2013 electronically. IMPORTANT: CURRENT SCHEDULE 073 CONTRACTORS DO NOT NEED TO RESPOND TO THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. Notice: The GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program has recently experienced a tremendous increase in new offers. Due to the large number of new offers currently in process, it could take up to 12 months before your offer is evaluated. GSA's practice is to evaluate offers in the order in which they are received. However, GSA may give priority to processing certain offers when circumstances dictate, such as when a federal agency Contracting Officer specifically requests an expedited offer review in order to meet a pending requirement that will be procured under the MAS program, or when there a need for GSA to bring strategically critical new products or services to market in order to meet federal customer needs.
