GSA Schedule Training

$400MM* in training is purchased from the GSA Schedule System and approximately 55% of these training dollars are spent with Small Businesses. 

Large Business                    $180MM
Small Business                     $220MM
Total Schedules                    $400MM

*Micro-Purchases not Included - These figures do not take into account a large number of micro-purchase training that takes place, those training under $3,000 where the vendors are found via GSA Schedule, however, the training is paid for via federal purchasing card or federal credit card. 

The training services sold to the federal government covers almost all facets of training.  The list of training services is very broad covering, Computer Programming, Management, Acquisition, Environmental, Emergency Preparedness, First Responder as well as almost all areas of Federal Training Coursework. 

Training Sales are Generally Hot During Federal 4th Quarter
Additionally, Training is often a 4th Quarter purchase item for Federal Agencies wanting to take full utilization of their budgets and therefore applying for a GSA Schedule today with a 4-6 month lead time will allow a firm wanting to break into federal training to be on schedule before the Jul-Aug-Sep (4th Quarter Federal Peak Spending).
