The Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) is a Blanket Purchase Agreement between GSA and 15 Schedule 75 contractors, including Office Depot and Staples. According to GSA the goal of the FSSI is to consolidate purchasing to these contractors in order to save money. However, the effect on small businesses that are not part of the FSSI group has been extensive. It is difficult for small businesses, that carry a limited inventory, to compete with the likes of Office Depot and Staples. Because of the FSSI you may have seen a drop in your business. One way to make up for that drop in revenue is to add products to your contract. By strategically increasing your catalog inventory you will put yourself in a much more favorable position to compete.
