Did you know that there is a government agency whose sole responsibility is the procurement of workplace furnishings? The General Services Administration’s Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center (IWAC) does just that. GSA office furniture contracts are coveted by leading manufacturers all over the U.S. You can find Schedules online that list approved suppliers of cubicles for federal workplaces. These include well known names such as Trendway, Teknion, and Steelcase.
The GSA has come a long way since its first big project (renovating the White House) in the 1950s. Today, it “influences the management of $500 billion in federal assets”. This means the agency is in a very strong position to negotiate aggressively for preferred customer pricing with the highest quality suppliers in the industry. Of course, at Cubicles Office Environments we make the same name brand office furniture available to every customer at deeply discounted pricing through our professional refurbishing service.
