Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)
A Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) is a simplified method of filling anticipated repetitive needs for supplies or services by establishing “charge accounts” with qualified sources of supply. A BPA is not a contract; it is a written instrument of understanding between two parties. BPAs are designed to reduce administrative costs in accomplishing small purchases by eliminating the need for issuing individual purchase, invoice and payment documents.

A flexible method of contracting which usually requires a longer preparation, negotiation and award time. This method is often used for larger contracts, long-term requirements, complex technical deliverables or when factors other than price are sufficiently important to require evaluation. .Negotiated procurements take many forms. They may call for competitive proposals, may involve restricted competition, or may even be sole source. Some permit discussions with offerors, while others allow award of a contract without discussions. The negotiation procedure allows discussions between the contracting office and the offerors, who are usually allowed to revise their offers before award of a contract.
Depending on the size and complexity of the requirement, negotiation may include discussions, position revisions, price adjustments, timing schedules, technical requirements, type of contract, or other contract terms. Contracting officers use negotiated procurements whenever sealed bidding is not appropriate. This type of procurement has a shorter award process, therefore it is appropriate if time does not permit sealed bidding; if award will be based on factors other than just price (such as best value); if further negotiations are necessary; or if the Government has chosen to award a sole source.
