Contract No. GS-10F-0319M

Option #3

Contract Period: June 1, 2017 through May 31, 2022

Normandeau Associates has been awarded a 5-year extension to our indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery contract with the General Services Administration for environmental services. The GSA has prequalified Normandeau to make it easier for federal contracting officers to award environmental contracts, i.e., capabilities have been reviewed and rates have been negotiated. All a federal customer must do is place an order directly with a GSA schedule contractor, such as Normandeau. Federal customers can significantly reduce the time required to obtain services to as little as two weeks. Lastly, the relationship between the contractor and the customer is a direct one - the customer need not transfer funds to GSA. Online access to contract ordering information is available at: This multiple award contract covers the following special item number.
