The GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract is an acquisition vehicle offered through the U.S. GSA which allows IT solution providers to offer services to government agencies directly. In order to qualify for the contract, companies are meticulously assessed by the GSA in order to determine their level of knowledge and ability to offer services to the federal government. Organizations are evaluated on multiple criterion including financial stability, years in business, and performance history.

By awarding a GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract, the federal government has determined that GuidePoint qualifies as an IT industry partner and is now authorized to work directly with federal government agencies. GuidePoint, a certified small business, is considered an industry partner that can offer government customers an approved rate for Information Security services.

“GuidePoint Security is honored to offer services through the GSA,” said Michael Volk, Managing Partner of GuidePoint Security. “By simplifying the procurement process, our GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract will enable our team of trusted security experts to assist our federal customers in successfully achieving their security and business goals through customized and innovative Information Security solutions.”
