Would GSA be willing to negotiate less than the 3/4 percent industrial funding fee for MAS/BPAs?

GSA recovers a 0.75% industrial funding fee for all orders placed under multiple award schedule contracts, including blanket purchase agreements. GSA must recover this fee on orders placed with FSS schedules, because, in 1995 Congress started phasing out appropriations so the agency can be self supporting. The 0.75% fee covers the spectrum of administrative costs to manage the program from market research, procurement planning, solicitation issuance, evaluation of proposals, negotiations and award, contract administration, marketing, publications, etc. This fee may be added to the final negotiated prices.
