The General Services Administration’s Transactional Data Reporting (TDR) rule states that contractors must electronically report prices paid by the federal government for goods and services purchased through GSA schedules. Using a phased-in approach affecting select schedules, the TDR pilot program has corresponding reporting requirements that contractors must know.

During the conversion from 72A reporting to the TDR reporting system: For current schedule holders, reporting starts 30 days after the end of the first month of the quarter following acceptance of the mass mod.  New contractor reporting requirements start 30 days after the month of contractor award.

For IFF reporting purposes, contractors are not required to change their cu...

The General Services Administration (GSA) set October 1, 2015 as the official date to consolidate their professional services schedules into one contract, known as the PSS (Professional Services Schedule).  


A few  points to know about the PSS migration:

  • If your firm holds one professional services schedule, you will do nothing until October 1.   Single schedule holders would not have received the migration letter that multiple affected schedule holders received. In August, single schedule holders will see a mass modification which they are required to accept. The mod states that effective October 1, 2015, your company will be known as a PSS firm.  
  • Firms with two or more affected sched...
