Accepting the Mass Modification

Mass Modifications are administrative modifications that occur whenever the solicitation has been updated with new regulatory changes. GSA requires that all schedule contractors, review and accept the new and existing terms and conditions of the latest solicitation. Even though some of the Refresh #18/19 changes may not apply to you, ALL GSA contractors must accept the Mass Modification in the Mass Mod System. Once the Solicitation Refresh is released and the accompanying Mass Mod is sent out, contractors will have 90 days to accept it. Failure to accept this modification prior to the due date may result in loss of access to GSA eTools and/or cancellation of the subject contract. Contact TGG or your TGG consultant for any assistance with acceptance of Mass Modification 19 or if there any questions.
