The Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative for Office Supplies Third Generation Solution (FSSI OS3) Purchasing channel was awarded August 8, 2014 and August 11, 2014. As a result of protests filed with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) against the awards made under Contract Line Numbers (CLINs) 0001, 0002, and 0003 of the FSSI OS3 solution, GSA is required to issue a stay of performance for the awards made under those CLINs. As we also received a protest on the remaining CLIN (CLIN 0004), there is currently a stay of performance on all the FSSI OS3 CLINs pending the resolution of the protests. During the stay, we advise Federal customers to fulfill their current needs through GSA's Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) 75 or through GSA Global Supply via GSAAdvantage!®. Please note the one-page instruction sheet on all office supply purchasing options through GSA.
