What is GSA ASTRO?

ASTRO is a family of 10 Multiple Award Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (MA IDIQ) contracts that is sponsored by the DoD. It was competed, awarded, and is administered by the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service (FAS), Assisted Acquisition Service (AAS), Federal Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM). With a 10 year ordering period, and no defined ceiling, ASTRO is anticipated to have a potential value in the multi-billions.
