This is an enormous growth opportunity for CIARA and its expanding public sector business. It has now joined an ecosystem of pre-qualified vendors from which government buyers at all levels – federal, state, and local – can buy emerging technologies and innovative solutions in a highly streamlined process that guarantees the “best value” and lowest overall cost alternative.
Created by the General Services Administration (GSA), the MAS schedule ensures CIARA can fulfil procurement orders for any of its high-quality IT and server products and technical and engineering services – all at pre-negotiated ceiling prices that secure the best value for clients across all 50 states.
The revenue potential for CIARA is sizable as purchases made via the MAS Schedule represent 21 percent of overall federal procurement spending, or approximately USD $42B annually.
The GSA negotiates secure, fair pricing so any level of government can benefit from shorter lead-times, lower administrative costs, reduced inventories, and compliance with any environmental, socioeconomic laws and procurement regulations.
“Holding a MAS Schedule contract clearly opens new opportunities for CIARA to sell its best in class IT products and compete for new business,” said Mike Marracino, Executive Vice President of CIARA. “The entire team is so honored and we look forward to how this will magnify our brand as a leading IT and server provider across the entire United States.”
