The California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS) is a statewide contract that allows California state and local government agencies to purchase a wide variety of products and services from pre-qualified suppliers. CMAS is managed by the California Department of General Services (DGS), and it is one of the largest and most successful procurement programs in the state.
CMAS offers a number of benefits to both agencies and suppliers. For agencies, CMAS can help to streamline the procurement process, save time and money, and ensure that they are getting the best possible prices. For suppliers, CMAS can provide a valuable opportunity to reach a large and growing market.
To be eligible for CMAS, suppliers must meet a number of requirements, including having a good financial record, being able to meet delivery schedules, and offering fair and competitive prices. Once a supplier is qualified, they can submit proposals to agencies that are looking to purchase products or services that are covered by the CMAS program.
CMAS is a valuable resource for both California state and local government agencies and suppliers. It is a convenient and efficient way to purchase a wide variety of products and services, and it can help to save both time and money. If you are a California state or local government agency or a supplier, I encourage you to learn more about CMAS and how it can benefit you.
