In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 8.405-3, ordering activities may establish Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) under any GSA Schedule contract. GSA Schedules simplify the filling of recurring needs for supplies and services, while leveraging ordering activities’ buying power by taking advantage of quantity discounts, saving administrative time, and reducing paperwork.

The Professional Services Category has two (BPAs) to help agencies take advantage of quantity discounts, save administrative time, and reduce paperwork. ? The PM/CPI BPAs offer a pool of well-qualified contractors who provide market-leading Performance Management/Continuous Process Improvement (PM/CPI) services. ? The Identity Protection Services BPAs provide access to a pool of well-qualified contractors capable of providing identity protection services.

Join Steve Sizemore, Director of Direct Client Support Division, in GSA’s Southeast Sunbelt Region for details about when and how to use these BPAs.
