What type of contract can be written to cover us between BPA authorized contracts? Are there other means we can use?
You should follow the priority at FAR 8.002(a)(1) for deciding on which source to use for replacement copiers. You may end up procuring copier service from a Federal Supply Schedule on GSA Advantage! However, if it is a "catastrophe," you can consider the sole source procedure at FAR 6.302-2. However, it may be difficult to justify "unusually and compelling urgency" for copiers, particularly if the lapse in contract coverage is due to adequate lack of planning. The contracting officer will need to discuss that issue with management.
