The General Services Administration (GSA) offers BPS for deliveries and services to government authorities under a GSA calendar contract. GSA schedules simplify the filling of recurring supplies and services while using the purchasing power of ordering activities by using quantity discounts, saving administrative time and reducing red tape. Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 13.303 for BPAs: The following circumstances are the circumstances under which contractors can implement EPS: a Framework Purchase Contract (EPS) is a simplified method to meet the expected repeated supply or service needs by creating “royalty accounts” with qualified contractors. BPAs should be set up to be used by an organization responsible for sourcing its own activities or other offices, facilities, projects or functions. The use of BPAs does not relieve an agency of responsibility for the retention of commitments and expenditures in available resources and is carried out in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 8.405-3. BPAs offer an excellent option for both federal authorities and Schedule contractors and offer comfort, efficiency and reduced costs. The terms of the contract are included in the GSA calendar contracts and cannot be renegotiated for GSA Schedule BPAs. This is why BPA, as a purchase option, eliminates order and market costs such as source research, the need to prepare injunctions and the requirement to synoptinize the acquisition. BPAs too:.
