Wiley attorneys are adept at guiding contractors through the procurement procedures and rules relating to a variety of different contract vehicles, such as commercial item contracts, multiple award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contracts, U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) multiple award schedule (MAS) contracts, and Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs). See Scrutiny Over Commercial Item Contracts Continues; Rough Waters Ahead: Navigating Through the Risks and Uncertainties Surrounding GSA’s MAS Schedule Program.
