Procurement & Purchasing
Esri technology is on the GSA Schedule. Members of the federal government have several customized purchasing options.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the General Services Association (GSA), and Esri have partnered in an agreement that will benefit all of Esri's Federal customers. This was accomplished under the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act or FITARA by modifying Esri's IT 70 GSA Schedules, Contract No. GS-35F-253CA and GS-35F-5086H, to incorporate government-wide savings based on the aggregate purchase for all federal agencies. The total aggregate purchase now provides large-volume discounts regardless of the number of licenses or SaaS subscriptions for each order. Greater discounts will be applied as the aggregate increases.
There are three key elements to the FITARA modification which are explained in detail in the following videos:
