Acela Truck Co. has been approved by the U.S. General Services Administration for listing on the Federal Supply Service Schedule. The listing facilitates the procurement of vehicles under prenegotiated terms and prices.
The GSA provides centralized procurement for the federal government through its online ordering system, GSA Advantage!, offering billions of dollars worth of products, services, and facilities that federal agencies need to serve the public, according to Acela. Acela partnered with Fedharmony to leverage its existing GSA contact. Fedharmony helps ease the federal procurement process by partnering with in-demand suppliers to add hard-to-find products to GSA, according to Acela.
“With a growing number of emergency response, law enforcement, and military customers that are using or are desirous of using Acela’s products, we are very delighted to be included on Fedharmony’s GSA schedule and have them as a distribution partner as it makes Acela’s heavy-duty trucks even more attainable for government agencies,” said David Ronsen, president, in a prepared statement. “Knowing that many agencies prefer utilizing GSA, taking this step is a reflection of Acela’s strong commitment to continuing to work with U.S. government agencies.”
Fedharmony president Scott Smith said in a statement:
“Fedharmony’s ability to bring qualified manufacturers of specialty mobile equipment has resulted in an ever growing portfolio of products. Acela’s line of trucks is a perfect marriage of quality and added performance that many of the GSA customers are looking for.
