    What constitutes repetitive? Is there a dollar value that needs to be exceeded to justify using a BPA instead of 3K GPC?


    Answer

    FAR 13.303-2(a) establishes the four "circumstances under which contracting officers may establish BPAs." While none of these includes a minimum dollar value for establishment of the BPA, common sense should prevail. Paragraph (b) states "after determining a BPA would be advantageous, contracting officers shall..." Consider the circumstances in (a) and apply common sense to determine whether establishment of a BPA is advantageous for your situation.
     
    Once a BPA is established, follow the guidance and limitations at FAR 13.303-5 and DFARS 213.303-5 for individual purchases.
