CH2M has a number of contracts with the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) to provide worldwide services to:
- All Federal agencies and activities in the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches
- Government contractors authorized by a Federal Agency pursuant to 41CFR 101-26
- Mixed ownership government corporation (such as the postal service)
- The government of the District of Columbia
- State and local governments, tribal governments and educational institutions (Information Technology Services only)
- Other activities and organization authorized by statute or regulation to use GSA
Why use our GSA contracts?
When using GSA contract vehicles instead of conventional full and open competition or other procurement methods:
- Orders placed against GSA contracts are considered to be issued using full and open competition.
- Ordering activities do not need to seek competition outside of GSA Schedules or synopsize the requirement.
- In addition, ordering activities are not required to make a separate determination of fair and reasonable pricing, except for the price evaluation required by FAR 8.405-2(d) when ordering services requiring a statement of work.
- By placing an order against one of CH2M's GSA Schedule contracts, the ordering activity has concluded that the order represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternative to meet the government's needs.

Different ways a client can use GSA
How can a client can access CH2M using GSA? There are three ways.
- If the client has its own contracting department, that contracting department can send CH2M an RFP, either competitive or sole source, asking CH2M to provide a proposal in accordance with the rates in one of its GSA contract. Clients do this so that contracting will not have to determine the contract rates "fair and reasonable" since GSA has already done this work for them when they awarded CH2M the original contract. The client's contracting department would issue CH2M and standalone contract based upon our proposal.
- If the client has its own contracting department, that contracting department can send CH2M an RFP, either competitive or sole source, asking CH2M to provide a proposal in accordance with the rates in one of its GSA contracts. This is very similar to No. 1 above, except for the fact that the client's contracting dept would issue an order to CH2M under its GSA contract. This differs from No. 1 because an order is being placed against our GSA contract instead of a standalone contract.
- The client can send GSA a SOW of work, and specify the SIN number, and GSA will issue a competitive RFP to every contractor who has a contract with that SIN number. Proposals are submitted to GSA or directly to the client and GSA or the client make an award. This method is always competitive.
