Emergency Acquisition Basic Ordering Agreements

GSA’s Office of Acquisition Operations (QMA) has executed 18 Basic Ordering Agreements (BOAs) to assist all levels of government in the rapid procurement and delivery of any commercial supply or service both in anticipation of and response to emergency/disaster events (Yes - BOA holders can source anything commercial and can offer it to you under the BOA). These BOAs may be used for Presidentially declared emergencies and disasters OR for more localized emergency events deemed an emergency by the affected governmental entity. GSA has established these BOAs with qualified vendors from diverse industries and locations to:

  • Provide federal agencies, state & local, tribal, and territorial governments with an ordering vehicle that minimizes the administrative burden in locating and soliciting quality products from qualified vendors;
  • Provide vendors offering emergency supplies, services, and managed solutions with an enhanced opportunity to compete for emergency acquisitions and support emergency response efforts; and
  • Ensure the rapid delivery of procured materials, equipment, and services during periods of uncertainty by pre-positioning delivery and other terms and conditions.

Contact the QMA BOA Contracting Officer below to learn more about how these BOAs can support you in times of emergency.
