CMAS Contract Schedules
Basis of CMAS Agreements
The State of California establishes multiple-award agreements in accordance with Public
Contract Code Sections 10290 et seq. and 12101.5 (effective January 1994). Multiple award is an award to two or more contractors for the same products and/or services at the same or similar prices. Multiple awards do not pertain to the number of buyers who would be ordering from the agreement, but rather the number of contractors receiving an award from a common bid process.
CMAS agreements are not established through a competitive bid process conducted by the State of California. Because of this, all pricing, products and/or services offered must have been previously bid and awarded on a Federal GSA schedule.
For clarity, the CMAS Program does not “use” the GSA Authorized Federal Supply
Service Schedule. Instead, we establish a totally independent California agreement for the same products and services at equal or lower prices.
Who can use CMAS
State and local government agencies may use CMAS unless the CMAS contractor
explicitly stipulates in their CMAS that it is not available to local governments. A local government agency is any city, county, district, or other local governmental bodies, including the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) systems, K-12 public schools and community colleges empowered to expend public funds.
