Centre’s Boot Camp for GSA Multiple Award Schedules Contracting (MAS) isn’t just about getting a MAS contract. This course focuses in on obtaining a Schedule, maintaining compliance, and ultimately driving your government sales. Centre’s GSA gurus will help you keep up with the changes that affect your contract administration and compliance efforts. In addition, you’ll learn the key components to making your MAS contract a worthwhile investment for your company.

During this course, you’ll gain the necessary skills to understand and negotiate your own MAS contract and/or make modifications to an existing Schedule.
