FAS Schedule Sales Query Plus (SSQ+)

About This Report

The Federal Acquisition Service’s (FAS) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program streamlines the process of purchasing products and services for the federal government. It’s the largest purchasing program on the planet, with pre-negotiated prices, delivery terms, warranties, and other terms that make it easier for agencies to acquire everything they need to meet their missions and save taxpayer dollars. What’s on Schedule? Everything from staplers and electric vehicles to cell phones and complicated enterprise-wide IT solutions. Suppliers are no longer content to simply know what the Government is buying: they want to see how their company stacks up compared to other vendors on the same Schedule, how their sales compare to the competition overall, and how data can be leveraged to improve business practices and take advantage of new opportunities.

Recognizing the demand for this kind of data, FAS’s Acquisition Oversight Division has developed the Schedule Sales Query Plus (SSQ+) Dashboard, designed to provide our suppliers with the figures they want and need. SSQ+ is a tool that depicts sales in both report and dashboard format. This tool replaces the SSQ and offers searchable and filterable information all the way from FY 1991 to present, including sales dollars for TDR contracts. In this version, the user has the ability to build his/her own report to view MAS sales by fiscal year and quarter based on various level of details: Product or Service, Governmentwide Category, Governmentwide Subcategory, Schedule Number, SIN, NAICs, Business Size, Contract Number etc. In addition to that, the user has access to prebuilt dashboards that allow visibility into sales trends by the various levels, trends specific to contracts within the first two years, and overall success rate for new contracts. Further, by drilling down deeper in the map section, users can zoom in and search for vendors by city, state, or zip code to see sales numbers by contract. Of course, MAS suppliers are not the only community finding this tool beneficial: federal acquisition professionals report the dashboard’s underlying data makes it easy to find vendor contact information and reach out and engage with MAS suppliers.

Please note that this tool will also replace the MAS Performance Dashboard. For folks who are comfortable with that dashboard, the SSQ+ links to those views for the time being. As we transition to the SSQ+, we plan on sun-setting the MAS Performance Dashboard.
