Is it true that GSA Schedules are going away?

GSA schedule activity is bigger than ever. They are not going away. They just recently moved and merged back under Federal Supply Service (FSS) so now they have unlimited resources. Effective April 1, 1996, GSA began charging a 1% Industrial Funding Fee (IFF) to allow them to continue to grow. That fee dropped to 0.75% as of January 1, 2004. As of June 1996 GSA had added IT Services to the contract which opened up a whole new world in procurement. In addition, we are seeing that large IDIQ contracts will be a thing of the past shortly and GSA will be the only procurement vehicle within the next 5 years.
