Under the GSA Schedule Program, federal, state and local government agencies are able to secure products and services through a simplified purchasing process at preferred government pricing. PR Newswire's inclusion on the GSA Federal Supply Schedule 541, Contract # GS-07F-0183V, marks the latest component of the company's long-term strategy to make it easier and more cost-effective for government agencies to take advantage of its services to help advance their mission through effective communication with the media and the public.

"We are very pleased that PR Newswire is now on the GSA Schedule," said Brian Taylor, vice president of PR Newswire Public Interest Services. "The schedule streamlines the procurement process and allows more of our government customers to enjoy the benefits of PR Newswire in the most timely and efficient manner. As federal, state and local government agencies work to be more transparent and active in communicating with the media and the public on their efforts to serve the public interest, PR Newswire can help them do this more efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before through the GSA Schedule program," Taylor added.
