Allen explains what the proposed MPT increase means for customer agencies, contractors (small businesses) and pre-existing contract vehicles like the GSA schedules program.

He also provides assessments and insights on the current state of the GSA schedules program, including the addition of Order level Materials and the challenge of SIN duplication.
