Lessons From Office Supplies: Schedule 75 FSSI Implementation

This FSSI process was first initiated in 2010 for Schedule 75 Office Supplies vendors where FSSI BPAs were awarded to only 15 vendors out of 560+ who were previously doing business with the federal government.

The outcome was the displacement of a significant number of small and large businesses with resulting job losses which accompanied the financial distress from the loss of government sales.

 I have lost 69% of my employees. I have had a reduction in revenue of 47 % (the percentage grows larger everyday). I had to reduce pay for all remaining employees.

"We have been a successful Schedule 75 contract holder for 27 yrs. ... always ranked in the top 10 of over 500 Schedule 75 contractors.
