Business people putting together an oversized puzzle

Federal acquisitions and procurement is more than just rules and regulations.  It is the process of making sound business determinations in order to receive the best products and services for the Government and its customers.  Federal agencies, including those in remote and overseas locations, can use the VA Schedules Program to simplify the acquisition and procurement process while also enjoying shorter lead times, affording lower administrative costs, and promoting reduced inventories.

We have lots of great information dedicated to walking you through the process of ordering from a Schedule contract, including:

Ordering Procedures & Guidelines

Other Useful Info
