Straightpoint Inc.’s force measurement, load monitoring and suspended weighing load cell equipment is available through a General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule Contract held by Newport News, Virginia-based The Scale People Inc. with immediate effect.
GSA Schedule Contracts, also known as GSA Schedules or Federal Supply Schedules, are indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ), long-term contracts under the General Services Administration's Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Program.
A myriad of entities are authorized to purchase from the schedules, including wholly-owned government corporations; universities; Army Corp of Engineers; Federal Maritime Commission; U.S. Navy; and Department of Transportation. Additionally, a number of international organizations are permitted to source through the contracts, including the European Space Research Organization; Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organization; and United Nations.
Straightpoint equipment is available through The Scale People’s Schedule 66; GS-07F-021BA. Schedule 66 covers scientific equipment and services, providing one stop shopping for all general purpose and specialized laboratory equipment and furniture; unmanned aerial vehicles; measurement and testing equipment; and laboratory test and analysis services.
Chris Buck, president at veteran-owned The Scale People, said: “Straightpoint will be a great addition to our five-year GSA contract. The Straightpoint line will help satisfy the government's need to monitor overhead lifting for safety purposes and other related applications. We have enjoyed being a Straightpoint distributor and this only adds further value as we continue to explore avenues of mutual opportunity.”
The Scale People has serviced, calibrated and sold state-of-the-art equipment in weighing and measuring technology for nearly 60 years. Buck and the team are dedicated to providing custom solutions that best fit requirements by supplying service and expertise in installation and maintenance of any weighing system. All services are ISO/IEC 17025 and GLP/GMP accredited.
Jeff Miller, general manager at Straightpoint Inc., said: “The Scale People has been part of our U.S. dealer network since last fall as we looked to actively raise our profile in the scale marketplace. Endeavors to that end have been ongoing and we’re delighted to complement that activity through the GSA Schedule Contract program. This further strengthens our partnership and we look forward to offering our full support as they engage the illustrious customer base that sources equipment through Federal Supply Schedules.”
