Letter to the editor

Following is a response to an FCW.com poll question that asked, "Do you support limiting DOD's ability to buy services through the GSA schedule?"

As a bank card (purchase card, smart card) buyer for my organization, I compare prices. Because of market volatility, General Services Administration prices are often higher than commercial prices at any given moment.

Good stewardship requires that I select the lowest prices and best warranty for the people I service.

GSA negotiates a decent price at the time of the negotiation, but as times passes, before the next negotiation, the market changes rapidly.
