(i) orders on or below the micro-purchase threshold. The order activity may place orders on or below the micro-purchase threshold with any BPA holder who can meet the Agency`s requirements. The ordering activity should try to distribute such orders among BPA holders. With less administrative effort and minimal paperwork related to the abandonment of multiple orders, you can count on faster processing and consistent cash flow. Which is always great for any dynamically growing business. (i) specifications (SOW). The ordering activity must develop specifications. all specifications must contain a description of the work to be carried out; workplace; performance period; the delivery plan; applicable performance standards; and special requirements (e.g.B. security clearance, travel and specialized knowledge).
As far as possible, the Agency`s requirements should be performance-based (see subsection 37.6). Once A BPA is available, buyers should always look for the competition for purchases over 2500 $US. Buyers can meet this requirement by applying to at least three suppliers to receive offers. The ideal BPA providers that are ideally suited to the purchase of BPA are those who have: (i) the schedule contract on which the BPA was established is still in effect; (B) BPA justifies the ordering activity by the contractor(s) who can provide the best value. Blanket Purchase agreements are federal acquisition vehicles designed to simplify and accelerate the recurring purchases that agencies must make. After signing, BPA sets the terms of all future orders in the calendar. (2) For services which require specifications. This is the case for the implementation of a BPA requiring hourly rate services, as provided for in the schedule contract. The applicable services are indicated in the Publications of the Federal Supply Schedule and the Contractor`s price lists. (C) Ensure that all tenders received are duly taken into account and that the award conforms to the basis of the selection in the call for tenders.
After requesting discounts (see 8.405-4), set the BPA with the contractor(s) who offer the best value. (A) The ordering activity must offer each holder of several BPA distinctions a fair opportunity to be considered for each order exceeding the micro-purchase threshold but not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold, unless one of the exceptions referred to in point 8.405-6 (a) (1) (i) is applicable. . . .
