Building Maintenance and Operations

GSA’s BMO vehicle is the first governmentwide solution to receive a best-in-class designation by meeting five rigorous category management performance criteria as defined by Office of Management and Budget guidance. Read more about this designation and the evaluation criteria on the GSA Blog.

Building Maintenance and Operations (BMO) strategic sourcing solution is a comprehensive and flexible solution covering all high-demand BMO services. It is an open market, multiple-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (MA-IDIQ), governmentwide contract vehicle supporting the strategic sourcing initiative to reduce costs and drive efficient purchasing by federal agencies.

There are both unrestricted and small business set aside programs available in the BMO vehicle to allow for large and small business participation. The BMO Small Business (SB) has additional socio-economic categories to help agencies meet their goals.

The BMO vehicle is a 10-year contract with one 5-year base and one 5-year option at the parent contract level. Agencies seeking longer than a 5-year task order must request a deviation from their own agency. BMO allows for the following contract types at the task-order level:

  • Fixed price;
  • Time and materials;
  • Labor hours; or
  • Hybrid of any of these.
