Reality ChecksShrinking Budgets - utilize agency tools ex. Agency Websites, GSA Forecast of Contracting OpportunitiesLarger requirements requiring multiple disciplines - a shrinking workforce necessitates one contract vehicle with many capabilitiesNew Personnel

- take every opportunity to introduce yourself, answer Sources Sought Notices, attend networking sessions, outreach events and walk throughsTechnical Changes - highlight environmentally friendly practices, - vendors must be prepared to meet current industry standards, - compliance with environmental laws and regulations, - construction firms must meet LEED Gold certification as a minimum in all new construction and substantial renovation projects.

Disaster Recovery Purchasing Section 833 of the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2007 (Public Law 109-364) amended 40 U.S.C. 502 to authorize the Administrator of General Services to provide for the use of Federal Supply Schedules by state and local governments for the purchase of products and services to be used to facilitate recovery from major disasters, terrorism, or nuclear, biological, chemical, or radiological attacks. The Department of Homeland Security has determined that all of the products and services available under GSA Schedules could potentially be used for recovery from a disaster or a terrorist attack. State and local government entities may use GSA Schedule contracts to purchase products and services in advance of a major disaster declared by the president, as well as in the aftermath of an emergency event.
