How the OCC Procures Goods and Services

For most contracting needs, the OCC uses U.S. Government Services Administration Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contracts, Government-wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC), and Multi-Agency Contracts (MACs).

For items not available through multiple award contracts, the OCC posts requests for proposals on the Federal Business Opportunities website.

Acquiring goods and services at the OCC consists of two phases; Awarding Contracts and Contract Administration. The OCC's Acquisition Management (AQM) Division has two teams that provide assistance during each phase of the acquisition process.

To better understand the phases of the acquisition process, refer to the Roadmap Through Contract Administration (PDF).
