PRLog - Apr. 26, 2012 - SKOKIE, Ill. -- GSA was setup to help the government save money on products they buy regularly like three compartment Styrofoam trays, non-medical latex vinyl gloves, and thumbprint handle toothbrushes http://instocksupplies.com/maximum-security-toothbrush.html. GSA is a virtual mall, called e-buy, where state purchasers can buy supplies for their everyday needs. It also allows them to bypass a tedious bidding process. If state employeers weren’t buying off of GSA e-buy they would have to put their purchasing needs out for bid. Now they can just go online, similar to Amazon can purchase what they need.
The products on e-buy are preapproved. Their price, country they’re made in, and selling companies’ policies are reviewed. This means a GSA representative has agreed that the product’s price is competitive to the market selling price. The problem with this is that other small women owned businesses that don’t have the resources to get their product on GSA are not allowed to compete. No matter what their price is, what upside they can offer they are not able or allowed to compete with the competition.
For example let’s take latex non medical vinyl gloves http://instocksupplies.com/POWDER-FREE-LATEX-GLOVES-BLUE-..., hospitals, jails, prisons use these gloves. A buyer at a prison goes on GSA e-buy and purchases what they need from there. No need for them to solicit competitors see who can really offer them a price and better service. Any company not listed on GSA isn’t even given a chance.
So you ask, why not just have every company list their products on GSA? To start explain the long process this entails would take all day. Small companies don’t have the same resources bigger companies have. A big company might have someone just to keep up with their GSA sales. Is GSA really providing purchasers with the tools they need? The government is using GSA as a process to further micro-manage the day to day tasks of this country.
