Ordering Procedures for BPAs

GSA has established that the prices contained within the contractor’s Schedule price list are fair and reasonable. However, the ordering activity is responsible for considering the level of effort and mix of labor proposed to perform a specific task being ordered, and for making a determination that the total price is fair and reasonable.

For example, video production services may be considered less defined in the sense that the ordering activity may know that they will require five videos during the next year but are unsure of the length, format or objective (educational, promotional, informational, etc.) of each video. In this case, the ordering activity may elect to award multiple BPAs so that they may maximize the potential for “Best Value” for each order placed.
