stopFSSI.org is dedicated to protecting small business federal contractors through the discovery of oversights in Federal Procurement Policy that result in severe impacts to the small business community, and to the economy at large. Through notification of the proper parties within our congress and our administration, the unintended consequences of these oversights can be mitigated...
Our mission is to garner the support of the SBA Office of Advocacy, as well as the House Oversight Committee, and other Congressional Committees, in order to reverse the negative impacts of the FSSI II program. We intend to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt, that this program is a form of contract bundling (proven inefective in prior administrations), and that it is resulting in a net loss to the American Taxpayer.
Company Overview / History
stopFSSI.org was founded in March of 2012, but it's roots stretch back over a span of nearly 18 months...
In 2010, after the effects of the FSSI II program were beginning to be felt by the small business contractors within GSA's MAS 75 contractor pool (Class 75), a large group of the affected contractors banded together, and we made a lot of noise about the damages being realized to small business. The response from administration was that they were creating a savings during a time of budgetary crisis, and our pleas fell on deaf ears.
At this time, much of Class 75 settled into their fate, a slow decline in business, and a moratorium on their MAS that would severely hamper their ability to renew their existing contracts, as well as prevent them from applying for a new contract if a renenwal was not approved. We went our own ways... some conducted independent research, many engaged their congressional representation independently, and we all continued to waive the red flag. However, on all fronts, we were continuously met with resistance... that is until the recent release of a GAO study confirming our research showing that the savings being claimed by GSA, as a result of the FSSI II program, was indeed overstated. To our dismay, this report did not at all look at the unintended consequences such as the impacts to small business, or the social and economic costs resulting from these impacts.
A core group of the original (Class 75) resurfaced, and put our heads together. We are working with academia to further our research, to discover what has really been happening, and to work in an organized fashion to garner the support of the SBA, and the House Oversight Committee, so that congress can take action to prevent further damages to small businesses, and to the American taxpayer.
We are chartered as a 501 nonprofit corporation and are registered with the Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service as stopfssiorg.
