Intertech (http://www.Intertech.com) has been awarded the General Services Administrator (GSA) Schedule Contract. This includes general purpose commercial information technology equipment, software, and services.
The GSA award allows government agencies to easily work with groups of pre-approved vendors, because they know vendors have already had to adhere to the regulations stipulated by GSA.
In short, this award makes it easier for government agencies to access Intertech's expertise in training and consulting services.

The GSA schedule contract award will only aid in helping government agencies find the right fit for their training and consulting services needs."
The GSA model is based on two primary ideas. 1) Basis of Award and 2) Price Reduction Clause. These stipulations increase price competition between vendors and eliminates the opportunity for unregulated or unfair awarding of government contracts.
