Like GSA Schedule contracts, the VA Schedules are indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity type contracts awarded to pre-approved vendors using full and open competition.  Additionally, the FSS program negotiates firm-fixed pricing based on a commercial “most favored customer” pricing concept, including an option for economic price adjustments.  All products and services are state-of-the-art and provide national/worldwide coverage.
