What is a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)?
A BPA is actually an agreement. That agreement provides us a streamlined process to award orders against it that are within the scope of that agreement. It is not appropriate to include funding on the agreement, as it is not a contract.The task order is how we acquire work under the BPA and fund it. These are mini-contracts. The award process is streamlined, in that we can order off of the agreement and do not require a Market Research report and Acquisition Plan as part of the acquisition package.
