Let’s break that down in layman’s terms:

This type of contract can be used across all agencies from the DOD and DHS, to FEMA and the Department of Energy.
Multiple Award Schedule:
Long-term Government wide contracts with commercial firms that provide local, state, and federal Procurement Officers access to millions of commercial products and/or services at volume discount pricing.
