INPUT Principal Analyst Jason Sajko reports on the GSA Schedule 70.
GSA Schedule 70 purchases by state and local governments and public educational groups grew 7.5 percent in fiscal year (FY) 2010 to $608 million (Table 1), according to a new Deltek report. In addition, Schedule 70 orders for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 increased about 4 percent to $144.9 million compared with $139.5 million in the corresponding quarter of FY 2010. The study, “GSA Schedule 70 Use by State and Local Governments,” is issued annually by Deltek’s INPUT business unit and analyzes vendor-reported volume data from the GSA contracts.
Again, in 2010, Schedule 70 state and local orders were driven by wireless services and perpetual software licensing. The report details the top five Schedule 70 state and local sales contractors by volume in FY 2010, which were Verizon Wireless, Oracle, DLT Solutions, Mythics and CDW-G.
