SmartBUY Blanket Purchase Agreements
SmartBUY Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) are the result of a collaboration between GSA, the Department of Defense (DoD) Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI), and software vendors to offer improved, pre-negotiated terms and conditions for Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) software. BPAs can reduce risks and costs while saving administrative time and reducing paperwork.
Government-wide SmartBUY agreements are open to all eligible civilian agencies and required for DoD agencies.

Buy software through SmartBUY
Agencies can leverage SmartBUY agreements to order Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) software with enhanced terms and conditions while reducing risks and costs.
Ordering from SmartBUY is decentralized — you place a order under the BPA following your agency’s ordering guidance and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) guidance (GSA does not place the order for you). You can find ordering guides for available SmartBUY BPAs on DoD's ESI site.
Sell software through SmartBUY
SmartBUY makes it easier for vendors to fulfill customer requirements. With SmartBUY BPAs, vendors can sell commercial off the shelf (COTS) software to the entire federal community.
Vendors selling through SmartBUY can consolidate existing agreements, increase federal market share, and create recurring revenue streams.
SmartBUY BPAs are awarded after a competitive solicitation. We release requests for information (RFIs) on SAM.gov and requests for quotation (RFQs) on eBuy.
