Fayetteville, NC (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
G and E Advisor is pleased to announce that their client Thompson and Little, LLC has been awarded a GSA Schedule Contract number GS-07F0417Y and is now certified to provide goods and services to the Federal Government. Acknowledging the growth in federal spending through the General Services Administration (GSA), Thompson and Little has placed their extensive catalog of Food Service and Supplies along with their new Air to Water Technology that makes pure water from the air on the government's electronic ordering system, GSA Advantage!®
"As a Woman Owned Small Business, this schedule opens up significantly more markets throughout the country," states Drew OQuinn, Vice President of Thompson and Little. He continues: "Being on the GSA schedule expands our reach beyond the federal government to numerous state and municipal governments and their corresponding educational boards as they can now take advantage of exceptional government pricing."
For over 65 years, Thompson & Little has been one of the Southeast Region's top foodservice dealers. This GSA contract award will make it easier for federal agencies to utilize an array of our capabilities and drastically streamline the ordering process. GSA schedules are the preferred purchasing mechanism for most federal buyers, and Thompson & Little underwent a thorough application process to obtain this certification. We can now deliver turnkey solutions assistance to federal agencies at competitive prices.
After a year of trying to deal with a large company to write and obtain a GSA contract, we hired a local small business, G and E Advisor, who has had years of helping others get their GSA Schedules. Within 30 days, we had our WOSB, our NC Hub certification and our GSA filed. We were astonished that after hearing from others that it would take 9 to 12 months to receive our GSA contract, with help from Diana Potts of G and E Advisor, we received our GSA contract within a record of 8 weeks, "stated Drew OQuinn.
