The General Services Administration (GSA) acts as the federal government’s purchasing agent, connecting federal purchasers with the most cost-effective and high-quality commercial products and services. This is accomplished, in part, by the GSA Schedules program, through which GSA establishes long-term governmentwide contracts with commercial firms to provide access to millions of commercial supplies (products) and services at pre-negotiated pricing. Federal buyers can order these products and services directly from GSA Schedule contractors or through the GSAAdvantage! online shopping and ordering system.
Details about our GSA schedule can be found on our GSAAdvantage! contractor page. Generally, our schedule includes publications and software from the International Maritime Organization, nautical charts produced by NOAA and printed on-demand, select titles of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), and a few other relevant publications. A full listing of the products on our schedule is available here.
We regularly update our schedule with new editions and new publications to best support our federal government.

All of the products on our GSA schedule can be purchased using funds set aside as part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009; this is indicated by a small symbol () appearing next to each product.
Our status as a small business means that orders placed with us are counted toward a small business spending goal.
Since we are also a veteren-owned business, orders placed with us also can be counted toward a veteren-owned business spending goal.
