Then our contractor obtains quotes from the vendors on the Prime Vendor Contract list for the imagery or solutions required. The Prime Vendor Contract helps the USDA achieve our goal – which is to have a contract in place that allows us to access products provided by the commercial industry and get the best price and performance possible. The Prime Vendor Contract provides the USDA FAS with the best possible global agriculture analysis solution products at the best possible prices and meets our stringent delivery specifications.”
