Procurement managers from government agencies can view these agreements and make purchases from the GSA schedule, knowing that all legal obligations, have been taken care of by GSA.
GSA conducts its business activities through 11 offices (known as GSA Regions) throughout the United States, located in: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Ft. Worth, Kansas City, Missouri, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle (Auburn), and Washington, D.C.
