How do we curate what we offer through GSA?
We attempt to provide our federal customers with the ability to purchase the majority of their audio and visual equipment from our GSA schedule. If you do not see a brand or product that you are interested in purchasing listed, reach out to us directly. There are regulatory and compliance guidelines (e.g. country of origin) that we are required to follow, but if the manufacturer and/or product is one that you feel we should be offering, please let us know. We are always looking to expand what is available to our federal customers with our most favorable pricing on the GSA schedule.
