The General Services Administration is looking for better deals on Microsoft software, according to a request for quotations released Wednesday.
The RFQ is part of the agency’s Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative and will reduce the prices agencies pay for purchases of Microsoft software, according to the agency.
Companies have until Dec. 18 to respond to the RFQ.
GSA Federal Acquisition Service chief Tom Sharpe said in a news release that agencies will find the contracting vehicle faster and easier to use.
“GSA is committed to working collaboratively with our partners at Microsoft resellers to reduce multiple contracts into a single set of agreements to save money and streamline the purchasing process for government agencies,” Sharpe said.
GSA said the new contracting vehicle will save agencies up to 20 percent on software purchases.
