The Building Maintenance and Operations (BMO) program offers training to its customer partners in a variety of formats:
- Conference call
BMO Overview and DPA Training
Federal agency personnel should attend this Overview and Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) training to learn about the overall structure, features and benefits of the BMO program. Before issuing task orders using BMO, Federal Contracting Officers (COs) must complete training and receive a Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA). Training sessions last approximately 2 hours and some venues will offer Continuous Learning Points (CLPs).
Please note: The BMO solution is currently only available in Zone 1. Federal agency personnel outside of Zone 1 are welcome to participate, but the facility that they are contracting for must be within Zone 1 (until further Zones are awarded).
Upcoming Training Events
Building Maintenance and Operations Overview & DPA training occurs twice a month on the second and fourth Thursday from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m ET. See the complete list of currently scheduled virtual webinars on GSA Interact.
