Bornstein & Song FSSI National Survey for GSA Schedule 75 Office Supplies (OS2)

Bornstein & Song FSSI National Survey for GSA Schedule 75 Office Supplies (OS2)   June 2010 - June 2013


To present data and evidence to postpone and reevaluate the FSSI in its present form, in light of the impact which the GSA FSSI has had on the Schedule 75 Office Supplies contractors since its inception in June 2010.

Survey Motivation and Objectives:

From the inception of the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) program, as it was being applied to the Schedule 75 Office Supplies community, Bornstein & Song expressed concern for the impact that the FSSI would have on small business, jobs, and the US Economy.

It became evident that neither OMB nor GSA would perform a Cost Benefit Analysis which would have addressed these issues. Lacking this analysis, which is a standard best practice in the Private Corporate Sector from which the Public Sector, Federal and State, sought to duplicate the savings from Strategic Sourcing, Bornstein & Song was motivated to conduct this Bornstein & Song FSSI National Survey for the GSA Schedule 75 Office Supplies Contractors, Three Years Later.

This Federal Strategic Sourcing Survey is intended to gather data and evidence to determine the impact on the affected Schedule 75 Office Supplies contractors three years later.  It was hoped that the Survey results would provide the necessary feedback from these businesses in order to determine whether the FSSI, in its present form, should be reevaluated and modified.
