Talent Plus is Helping Government Agencies Become Talent-Based Organizations
Lincoln, Neb. - Talent Plus has recently been awarded a five-year Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract by the General Services Administration (GSA) of the U.S. government under Schedule 738X, Human Resources Services. In order to qualify for this selective program, Talent Plus met an exacting set of standards and underwent a rigorous review by the GSA.
The MAS program is the premier government acquisition program in place today. It is the fastest, easiest and most effective contracting vehicle available, designed to help government agencies comply with all the rules and regulations to buy products and services the right way. Government agencies have significantly less work to do in negotiating a contract and have much greater flexibility in the amount and duration of contracts.
Orders placed under GSA MAS contracts are considered to be issued using full and open competition ordering. Government agencies purchasing through a GSA MAS contract vendor are not required to make a separate determination of fair and reasonable pricing as that has been precertified by GSA. Additionally, while mandatory small business preference programs do not apply to government agencies that place orders against GSA MAS contracts, such orders may be credited toward that agency's small business goals.
While Talent Plus has performed work for the government in partnership with other companies in the past, Talent Plus is excited at the new opportunities this contract award brings. The GSA MAS contract number is GS-02F-0019R and is issued under solicitation 2FYP-DR-99-0001-N.
