ATLANTA — Home Depot announced that it has been awarded a General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule contract to provide building products to federal agencies through GSA's Hardware SuperStore Multiple Award Schedule Program.

"Home Depot values the opportunity to expand its government business," said Bob Nardelli, chairman, president, and CEO of Home Depot. "During the past year, we have been putting the people and processes in place to ensure we follow the correct procedure to act as a federally approved contractor. The Home Depot takes compliance very seriously. A GSA Schedule contract enables us to provide a higher level of commitment and service to the federal government, and it opens the door to additional, large-scale government business opportunities."

To meet the needs of the federal government, the company is launching "The Home Depot Government Solutions Group." Part of the group will be based in Washington, to work directly with federal agencies, while an outside sales team will fulfill the needs of federal agencies and military installations across the country.

To develop its structure and strategy to serve the federal government, Home Depot worked closely with Maintenance Warehouse (MWH), a Home Depot company that has served the federal government for the last four years under its own GSA Schedule. MWH’s key product lines include HVAC, plumbing, hardware, lighting, electrical, janitorial, appliances, and tools. Together, the two businesses say they will provide a full line of building products and services for federal government customers.
