Additional Guidance

According to BioPreferred, carpet is as a floor covering composed of woven, tufted, or knitted fiber and a backing system. 

BioPreferred maintains an electronic product catalog listing products that either 1. are eligible for preferred federal procurement, or 2. have earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label.

For materials such as carpet, the applicable Guiding Principle for High Performance and Sustainable Buildings depends on what characteristics are included in the carpet.  If it has recycled or biobased content it would be GP 5, if it is low-emitting it would be GP 4, if it's both, it would be included in both. "Low emitting" would be any product that has a low emissions or low VOC standard.

Carpet that meets the NSF 140 standard may be available from contractors on the following GSA Multiple Award Schedules:

  • Schedule 72 SINs 31 301, 31 303, 31 304, 31 305, 31 501 and 31 601.
  • Schedule 78 SIN 192 09
