Although your point is well taken, a better understanding of what has happened to the GSA Schedules might be in order. Actually, a small business owned by a woman and/or a disabled veteran qualify as a 'disadvantaged' in accordance with P.L. 95-507. You would want to rejoice now that 'set-asides' are possible on the Schedules. With the certifications you either possess or are eligible for, you will have a much better chance at beating large businesses on GSA contract competition. Let me suggest you review the information on this link, http://bit.ly/rHs8HO to help you understand the benefits associated with 'set-asides on the Schedules.' Currently the set-asides are 'discretionary,' although if FPA has its way, set-asides will become 'mandatory' for all contracts between $3.000 and $150,000. I wrote an OP-ED which describes how the Schedules had been monopolized and controlled in the past, http://bit.ly/vROY11
In the particular solicitation you described, you have several options which you can pursue to position yourself as a potential bidder. If you want to discuss them, consider contacting me or one of my associates at FPA to discuss those options.
