Best-in-Class, Strategically-Sourced Solution Poised to Save Time and Money for Federal Agencies?
WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has awarded nine new contracts to its Phase II Unrestricted Building Maintenance and Operations (BMO) Best-in-Class strategic sourcing solution. This multiple award solution gives government agencies a more streamlined way of acquiring facility maintenance and operations services, including electrical maintenance, janitorial, landscaping, fire alarm and suppression system maintenance, commissioning, and more. While the procurement of the unrestricted contract was conducted through full and open competition, three of the nine new contracts have been awarded to small businesses.
“GSA’s BMO awards provide federal agencies with a fast, flexible and reliable way to obtain best value solutions for their facility maintenance requirements, while also cutting administrative costs and reducing duplicative contracts,” said GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service Heartland Region Commissioner and Facilities and Construction Governmentwide Category Manager Mary Ruwwe. “All the BMO contracts are designated Best-in-Class solutions and are recognized as ‘good-for-government’ purchasing solutions that will help save valuable taxpayer dollars and should be used by all agencies.”
Best-in-Class is a contracting and acquisition designation used across government to denote contracts that meet rigorous category management criteria as defined by Office of Management and Budget guidance. All Best-in-Class solutions:
- Are designated Best-in-Class by a cross-agency team of experts
- Have category management practices in place
- Are well-managed and transparent
- Collect, analyze and share transactional data
- Have tools to share info and reduce duplication
- Define, track and publicize metrics
Phase II adds five additional zones to the BMO solution:
- Zone 2 – Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont
- Zone 3 – Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina
- Zone 4 – Oklahoma, Texas
- Zone 5 – California, Nevada
- Zone 6 – Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska
This contract vehicle features reduced administrative costs, more accurate price comparisons, improved visibility on spending and pricing, and more flexibility with task orders. Awards were made to the highest technically rated firms offering a fair and reasonable price. The performance period for all contracts includes a five-year base with one five-year option. Commercial contract terms and conditions apply.
