BPA Blanket Purchase Agreements

Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) are a simplified way for federal agencies to meet anticipated, repetitive needs for services and products. BPAs are essentially "charge accounts" that ordering offices can establish with Destiny. In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 8.404, ordering offices may establish BPAs under any GSA Schedule contract.

The benefits of BPAs include:

  • Satisfies recurring requirements
  • Reduces acquisition costs through quantity discounts
  • Saves time by eliminating repetitive, individual purchases and payments
  • Reduces administrative efforts and paperwork
  • Lowers costs by leveraging an ordering office's buying power through volume purchasing
  • Enables an ordering office to use streamlined ordering procedures with no dollar limitations on individual task/delivery orders
  • Permits an ordering office to incorporate Contractor Team Arrangements
  • Allows for quicker turnarounds on orders
  • Permits an ordering office to incorporate terms and conditions not in conflict with the underlying contract

At the US Department of State, Foreign Service Institute (FSI), Destiny holds a BPA for the provision of training and other human capital development venues for Foreign Service Officers involved in the Economics and Politics program.
