Boot Camp for GSA Schedules

This event qualifies for 11 CLPs

Centre’s Boot Camp for GSA Schedules isn’t just about getting a GSA contract. This course hones in on obtaining a schedule, maintaining compliance, and ultimately driving your government sales. Centre’s GSA gurus will help you keep up with the changes that affect your contract administration and compliance efforts. In addition, you’ll learn the key components to making your GSA Schedule a worthwhile investment for your company.

During this course, you’ll gain the necessary skills to understand and negotiate your own GSA Schedule and/or make modifications to an existing schedule. Our instructors explain why Schedules are the preferred contract vehicle for federal government agencies, and provide a comprehensive overview of the issues faced in the ever-changing Schedules market.
