Representatives for the GSA plan to hold a phone conference on Jan. 16 to brief interested bidders; bids are due Jan. 30.
The winners will be under one-year terms, with up to four, one-year option periods. Offerors will need to provide the GSA with rates for a range of workspace types including unreserved workstations, also known as hot desks, reservable stations, and reserved office spaces.
