2nd Generation Information Technology Blanket Purchase Agreements (2GIT BPAs)
Our 2nd Generation Information Technology Blanket Purchase Agreements (2GIT BPAs) connect agencies with pre-competed Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware, software, and ancillary services through Multiple Award Schedule Special Item Numbers (SINs):
All federal, state, local, regional and tribal governments can order 2GIT products via GSA Advantage!® and eBuy.
Use eBuy to directly solicit quotations from 2GIT vendors for the products and ancillary services you require. Be sure to include any special requirements in your request for quotations( RFQ) like delivery/logistics, asset management, or security needs. Small business or other socioeconomic set-asides can be selected in the 2GIT eBuy portal.
Remember: small businesses may need to team with a large business to fulfill requirements due to limited letters of supply from certain original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and software publishers.
Traveler reimbursement is based on the location of the work activities and not the accommodations, unless lodging is not available at the work activity, then the agency may authorize the rate where lodging is obtained.
Unless otherwise specified, the per diem locality is defined as "all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city, including independent entities located within those boundaries."
Per diem localities with county definitions shall include"all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city as well as the boundaries of the listed counties, including independent entities located within the boundaries of the key city and the listed counties (unless otherwise listed separately)."
When a military installation or Government - related facility(whether or not specifically named) is located partially within more than one city or county boundary, the applicable per diem rate for the entire installation or facility is the higher of the rates which apply to the cities and / or counties, even though part(s) of such activities may be located outside the defined per diem locality.
