22 September 2009, Gallatin, Missouri – WideBand Corporation today announced that it has been awarded a five-year schedule contract (GS-35F-0699V) by the United States General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule Information Technology contract to offer selected products and services including its Professional Series Switches, fs[ix] Servers, and GoldKey Tokens.
“We are excited about working directly with GSA,” said Joseph Billings, President of WideBand Corporation. “This GSA contract award will make ordering our US-made products much easier and faster for government agencies. The contract will also be convenient for many of our education and municipality customers, since most of them can order from it as well.”
GSA Schedule 70 is one of the largest and most widely accepted government contract vehicles available to procurement officers, totaling over $16 Billion in 2008. It is a five-year contract listing the prices the federal government has agreed to pay for a vendor’s commercial products and services. By pre-negotiating prices and providing references in advance, the supplier has cleared a significant portion of the hurdles that face vendors wishing to do business with government agencies. The contract may be renewed for three five-year periods resulting in a 20-year contract if all renewals are executed.
