The US House of Representatives recently passed legislation that requires investigation of the negative impact of the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) on America’s small-business industrial base. The bill also requires the government’s justification for a strategic sourcing solicitation to be publicly released prior to the actual solicitation. ISSA applauded the leadership of Reps.
Grace Meng (D-NY) and Tim Walberg (R-MI) for promoting these new requirements as an amendment to National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (HR 4435).

Under terms of the FSSI, the General Services Administration (GSA) is working with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and all federal government agencies to create 10 new government-wide FSSI programs for commonly purchased products and services. One of these new programs will be for “jansan” products and supplies, such as general purpose cleaners and glass cleaners, trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, mops and floor buffers.

A second category is for maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) supplies, which includes supplies and equipment (excluding services) such as bathroom fixtures, hardware, power tools, pipes, valves, electrical equipment and lighting.
