Get to Know BPAs Virtual Class

December 5, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm




Blanket purchase agreements tied to General Services Administration schedule contracts are a growing yet under-studied area of federal contracting. We’ll examine the trends on BPA usage, discuss the drivers of those trends and analyze who’s buying what from whom on BPAs.

Learning Objectives

During this session attendees will learn about:

  • BPA trend data
  • Drivers of BPA usage
  • Examples of key BPAs
  • What industry sellers need to know about BPAs
  • What government buyers need to know about BPAs


Dates and Topics

Indefinite delivery vehicles are used widely across government for purchasing a broad range of goods and services. Understanding how IDVs work, which IDVs are right for which kinds of situations and which specific IDVs are in use today can help federal buyers and sellers make better decisions. We’ll explore IDVs with an eye toward providing actionable information for government and industry.
