Federal Supply Service, GSA.


Notice of final issuance of the GSA Non-Express Small Package Tender of Service.


The General Services Administration (GSA), in compliance with 41 U.S.C. 418b, is publishing the GSA Non-Express Small Package Tender of Service (SPTOS) which may be accessed as described in the Supplementary Information of this notice. The SPTOS establishes a uniform basis for buying routine non-express small package transportation service. GSA's solicitation and acceptance of small package rates and charges provides highly competitive pricing, which in certain cases includes the solicitation and acceptance of rates specific to an individual agency that accommodate that agency's particular traffic characteristics. GSA's Federal customer agencies benefit from the SPTOS, which leverages the Government's buying power to provide agencies standardized, cost effective, non-express small package transportation services.
