Under the new agreement, agencies can be credited for GSA schedule purchases on their 8 (a) public procurement objectives. Previously, purchases from Program 8(a) company schedules could only be considered 8(a) purchases if the SBA had included the specific schedule in Program 8(a). The new agreement covers all timelines. June 22, 2000 Contact: Bill Bearden 202-501-1231 email@example.com. . . .
