GSA Competitor Analysis

A critical piece of information for determining if your firm should obtain a GSA Schedule is to see if your firm can be price competitive with your competition. There are three federal online tools you can utilize to determine if your firm is price competitive with your GSA Schedule competition.

GSA CALC Labor Rate Tool

If you are thinking about doing work for the federal government and are not sure of what labor category rates you can expect to charge, the Contract Awarded Labor Category (CALC) Tool might be a great place to start.

CALC allows a user to search the GSA Schedule Award Data to see average wage rates per hour based upon educational level, experience, worksite location, business size, and the particular GSA Schedule the labor will be procured.

These rates should be compared to your firm’s current labor rates to see if your firm falls within one standard deviation as designated from the website results.
