The CTA document should state that each contractor is responsible for reporting their own sales as part of its schedule contract and the payment of the IFF corresponding to GSA. Each team member tracks sales across the system after the contract number to meet the IFF`s reporting requirements. For example, an IT Large Category F (formerly Schedule 70) Schedule Contractor may collaborate with a Schedule Professional Services Contractor (PSS). However, if you enter into an agreement as a subcontractor, you can only offer the services provided in the main contractor`s GSA schedule. The extensive supply and services provided by GSA Schedule contractors should minimize the demand for open market items. However, if open market positions are required, all of these positions must be clearly identified as “open positions in the market” in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 8.402 (f). A GSA Schedule Contractor Team Arrangement (CTA) is an agreement in which two or more GSA Schedule contractors collaborate to provide a comprehensive solution that meets a customer`s requirements.

These roles and responsibilities are defined by the team, not the government. In a Prime/Subcontractor agreement, only the main contractor needs a GSA calendar. The principal contractor would consider the transaction to be a direct sale of GSA, while the subcontractor would consider that it made a commercial sale to the principal contractor. In a Prime/Subcontractor agreement, the practice of the contract belongs exclusively to the main contractor. The main contractor is therefore responsible for all products and services provided by the subcontractor. In this scenario, government purchasing agencies are often asked to indicate that the contract agent (CO) authorizes the use of subcontractors before they can do so. By complementing each other`s capabilities, the team offers a comprehensive solution and meets the requirements of the command activity that it cannot win individually.
