What Makes FSSI OS4 a “Best-in-Class” (BIC) Contract?

As the newest generation of the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) OS solution, OS4 incorporates all of the features of Best-in-Class FSSI OS3 while integrating the robust structure of the MAS (Multiple Award Schedules). All of the lessons learned from OS3 have contributed to the creation of OS4.

OS4 cuts costs, reduces price variability, and increases efficiencies by buying everyday supplies such as pens, paper, and printing items from a list of contractors with negotiated low prices. In fact, OS4 builds on the success of OS3 by delivering even lower prices – on average, 15 percent!

OS4 benefits include: 

  • Ensuring compliance with applicable regulations, including the AbilityOne Program, sustainable purchasing requirements, and the Trade Agreements Act
  • Fostering markets for environmentally sustainable products by offering items with various sustainable attributes 
  • Simplifying data collection and enhancing transparency by enabling agencies to better manage spend and measure cost avoidance 
  • Hosting a wide variety of contractors in all socioeconomic representations 
  • Providing ease of ordering with multiple options: GSAAdvantage!, FedMall, or direct from the contractor

On September 3, 2019, the Office of Management and Budget, with the support of the Government-wide Category Management Program Management Office, announced the designation of OS4 as “Best-in-Class” (BIC). This designation is a critical part of the Office Management Category Plan, which focuses on customer-centric tools, efficient supplier relationships, attention to socioeconomic goals, and best practices in governmentwide category management.
