Emergency Acquisition Basic Ordering Agreements

GSA’s Office of Acquisition Operations (QMA) has entered into an agreement with federal agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to assist in the rapid procurement and delivery of commercial supplies and services both in anticipation of and response to emergencies as defined in FAR 2.101. To that end, QMA has established a Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) with qualified vendors to:

  • Provide authorized 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 Officers below to learn more about how these BOAs can support you in times of emergency.
