BOA - Basic Ordering Agreement
A written instrument of understanding, negotiated between an agency, contracting activity, or contracting office and a contractor, that contains (1) terms and clauses applying to future contracts (orders) between the parties during its term, (2) a description, as specific as practicable, of supplies or services to be provided, and (3) methods for pricing, issuing, and delivering future orders under the basic ordering agreement. A basic ordering agreement is not a contract.

A BOA may be used to expedite contracting for uncertain requirements for supplies or services when specific items, quantities, and prices are not known at the time the agreement is executed, but a substantial number of requirements for the type of supplies or services covered by the agreement are anticipated to be purchased from the contractor. Under proper circumstances, the use of these procedures can result in economies in ordering parts for equipment support by reducing administrative lead-time, inventory investment, and inventory obsolescence due to design changes.

BPA - Blanket Purchase Agreement
A simplified method of filling anticipated repetitive needs for services and products.  BPAs are "charge accounts" that ordering offices establish with GSA Schedule contractors to provide themselves with an easy ordering tool. In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 8.404, ordering offices may establish BPAs under any GSA Schedule contract. Let's look at the benefits and advantages of establishing a BPA with a GSA Federal Supply Schedule contractor.

Generally, a single BPA should be established when you can easily define your services and/or products requirements and a firm-fixed price or ceiling price can be established. Since a best value selection is made when the single BPA is established, you do not need to make a separate best value selection for each order under the BPA.

Multiple BPAs should be established when you cannot easily define your services and/or products requirements, or you determine that more than one BPA is needed to meet your needs. First determine which GSA Schedule contractors are technically qualified and then establish BPAs with them.  When multiple BPAs are established, each order must be competed among all BPA holders and a best value selection must be made each time an order is placed.

BPA Call
A call against an existing blanket purchase agreement to request a service or product provided under the agreement.

FSS - Federal Supply Schedule
GSA schedule contracting office issued publications containing the information necessary for placing delivery orders with schedule contractors. Ordering offices issue delivery orders directly to the schedule contractors for the required supplies and services.

The Federal Supply Schedule program, directed and managed by the General Services Administration (GSA), provides Federal agencies with a simplified process for obtaining commonly used commercial supplies and services at prices associated with volume buying (also see 8.002).  Indefinite delivery contracts (including requirements contracts) are established with commercial firms to provide supplies and services at stated prices for given periods of time.  Similar systems of schedule-type contracting are used for military items managed by the Department of Defense.  These systems are not included in the Federal Supply Schedule program covered by this subpart.
