Manufacturing location – If the product has essential foreign components or if services are provided by foreign companies, this field indicates whether the contract is still a U.S. contract. Choose Mfg in the U.S. if the action is primarily for the purchase of finished products made in the U.S. Select Mfg outside the U.S. – Use outside the U.S. if finished products manufactured abroad are primarily intended for use outside the United States (FAR 25,100). Selection of Mfg outside the United States – Resale when finished products produced abroad are primarily for resale (FAR 25.103 (d). Choose Mfg outside of U.S.

trade agreements if finished products manufactured abroad are primarily eligible products purchased under trade agreements (FAR 25,402 (a) (1)). Choose Mfg outside the U.S. – Commercial Information Technology if finished products produced abroad are primarily commercial information technology products (FAR 25.103 (e)). Choose Mfg outside of the public interest decision if the Head of the Agency has found that national preferences would be inconsistent with the public interest (FAR 25.103 (a)). Choose Mfg outside the United States – Domestic unavailability if most of the finished products manufactured abroad were not available domestically, as shown by one of the following mentions: (i) The article is mentioned in far 25.104 (FAR 25.103 (b)).ii) The Agency has made an individual finding (FAR25.103 (b)). iii) No bid was received for a national final product, although the transaction was synomic and organized as part of a full and open selection competition (FAR 25.103 (b) (3). select Mfg outside the United States – unreasonable cost, whether the cost of domestic finished products offered was unreasonable (FAR 25.103 (c), 25.105 and Subpart 25.5 Choose Mfg outside the United States – Qualifying Country (DOD only) For DoD , finished products produced abroad are mainly products from qualified countries (DFARS 225.003 and 225.872-1). This feature is the same for a BPA call from Part 8 and Part 13. A GSA BPA calendar is an agreement reached by a state purchaser with a Schedule contractor to meet the repetitive needs of supplies or services (FAR 8.405-3). BPAs allow the contractor and buyer to meet recurring needs taking into account the specific requirements of the customer, while the buyer`s full purchasing power is used by using quantity discounts, saving administrative time and reducing red tape. BPAs are advantageous for: (i) orders at or below the micro-purchase threshold. The ordering activity may place orders with or below the micro-purchase threshold with any BPA holder who is able to meet the Agency`s requirements.

The ordering business should endeavour to distribute these orders among EPS holders. The expected quantity is indicated by the purchaser as a total amount of use, which has historically been recorded for a few years or, as required, for quantitative analysis. The supplier may indicate a delivery condition for this [contract]. For example, 80% of the expected amount must be purchased at the end of the contract, which can take a year or two. (ii) description of the acquired supply or service; B) the benefits of current competition and the need to regularly compare several technical approaches or prices; The implementation of EPS-BPA can be implemented with: (1) more than one supplier of similar supplies or services, in order to ensure maximum and feasible competition; (2) a single business in which a large number of individual purchases are likely to be made over a period of time, occasionally or below the simplified acquisition threshold; or (3) GSA Federal Supply Schedule supplier (for more information, see a future it series article). Buyers prepare BPAs without requesting an order and only after contacting suppliers to take the necessary precautions: once a BPA is available, buyers should always seek competition to buy more than 2500 USD.
