Require that GSA Advantage be the primary vehicle for placing orders for office supplies!

Most contractors offer basic products at exorbitant prices—sometimes even greater than Staples. Since GSA Advantage compares prices from tons of small- and mid-sized businesses, you can EASILY order the cheapest available product from multiple businesses. I have cut down orders from $2000 to under $500 while getting the same product. Implemented government-wide, this can produce significant savings. After all, that is why the GSA has created this service. We need to make sure that before turning to other sources, employees are utilizing a great resource that is available to them!
