Independent Suppliers Group Awarded New GSA Contract
Rosemont, IL – August 3, 2022 – Independent Suppliers Group (ISG) is pleased to announce its new award of a General Services Administration (GSA) contract for office and restroom products. ISG’s previous GSA Schedule 75 expired on July 24, 2022, after being held by the company for 20 years.
“We are very excited to receive this contract award which enables our participating federal sales dealers to continue to sell in the federal government marketplace,” said Charles Forman, EVP Sales and Marketing. “The ISG history of holding federal government contracts is vast and has resulted in millions of dollars of sales for our members.”
This new award is a five-year contract with three five-year extension periods with the first period being July 22, 2022, through July 21, 2027, and has an estimated award value of $30 million. This value-added benefit of membership in Independent Suppliers Group, through the EPIC Business Essentials Order Point Platform, allows more than 40 currently authorized participating dealers to sell to the federal government without having to manage their own contract.
“The federal sales program, with ISG’s EPIC Business Essentials, has given us the ability to significantly grow our federal business in our marketplace,” said Stacy Duke, President of Butler Business Products. “This new award is vitally important and will continue to allow us and our fellow participating members to grow our federal sales. The EPIC team is very knowledgeable and helpful in every step of the process.”
