As a contracting specialist can I initiate an IDIQ task order to purchase from a GSA contractor. i have always been told that as a contracting specialist/contracting officer I was not permitted to purchase directly from GSA. I could only inidrectly purchase by authorizing a contractor doing business for the NAVY. I reviewed GSA federal agency customer-ordering from the schedule "who can order" and DON nor any other department of defense agencies are on the list.
Can I or can I not initiate a task order on a GSA contract.
Federal government customers routinely order directly off of GSA Schedule contracts on GSA Advantage!, but each customer needs to register for an account
before they can proceed. I'm not certain where you saw that the Navy is not included among those "Who Can Order." The webpage
states "All federal agencies and activities in the executive, legislative and judicial branches" are eligible.
