Blanket Purchase Agreements
Once in place, BPAs offer a fast turnaround vs. initiating a contract.
BPAs establish a communication path between the customer, the contracting office, and the potential vendor for future use. Once established, you can expect a rapid turn-around on delivery with no minimum purchase requirement.
- No minimum purchase
- No funding to initiate
- Quick turn-around
Did you know? The FAR (13.303) establishes BPAs as a simplified method of filling anticipated repetitive needs for supplies or services—so exact items, quantities, and delivery requirements do not need to be known in advance.
