ORDER LEVEL MATERIALS (OLMs)

Supplies and/or services acquired in direct support of an individual task or delivery order placed against a Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract or FSS blanket purchase agreement (BPA). OLMs are not defined, priced, or awarded at the FSS contract level. They are unknown before a task or delivery order is placed against the FSS contract or FSS BPA. OLMs are only authorized for inclusion at the order level under a Time-and-Materials (T&M) or Labor-Hour (LH) Contract Line Item Number (CLIN) and are subject to a Not To Exceed (NTE) ceiling price.

OLMs include direct materials, subcontracts for supplies and incidental services for which there is not a labor category specified in the FSS contract, other direct costs (separate from those under ODC SINs), and indirect costs. OLMs are purchased under the authority of the FSS Program and are not "open market items."

Order-Level Materials SIN is only authorized for use under T&M and LH order CLINs. The Order-Level Materials SIN is only authorized for use in direct support of another awarded SIN.

How to Buy

GSA schedules offer federal agencies a streamlined and simplified procurement process. Procurement paperwork is minimized and the procurement process timeline is short. All federal agencies and their approved contractors may use GSA schedules to procure services.

Each GSA schedule has been competitively awarded. It is a contract with the US Government for broad categories of services. Services are catalogued at fixed labor rates. The established hourly rates on GSA schedules have already been determined to be "fair and reasonable" by the Government.

There is no need to advertise in the Commerce Business Daily or to coordinate with anyone outside your own agency. Each agency has contract procedures to follow when using the GSA streamlined and simplified procurement process; see FAR 8.4 for details.

Here is an overview of the steps to procure services via a GSA Schedule:

1. You develop a simplified package of documents regarding a desired service (such as Statement of Work, schedule, and evaluation criteria).

2. You provide the package of documents and funding requirements to your internal Contracts Office.

3. Your Contracts Office develops and issues an RFP/RFQ to prospective offer(s).

4. Offer(s) develop their proposal(s)/quote(s).

5. The Contracting Officer evaluates offer(s) and makes an award.

6. The Contracting Officer issues a task order.

If you have any questions about either this process or a specific requirement, please Contact Us.
