Ordering procedure for orders at or below the micro purchase threshold ($3,000) • Place with any vendor from Pool 1, 2 or 3 • Attempt to distribute orders among all BPA holders • Most vendors have an order minimum of $100. • Smaller orders may be placed with some vendors, but a small fee may be incurred • As part of the Government’s green initiatives, larger orders are encouraged to reduce the number of deliveries and transactions
Orders exceeding micro-purchase threshold ($3,000) but below the maximum order threshold • Employee with appropriate purchasing authority must execute the order • At least three vendors must be evaluated by surveying DOD EMALL, GSA Advantage!, vendor catalogs, or vendor pricelists • Vendors outside the FSSI BPAs need not be surveyed • Toner prices can be supplied from vendors in Pool 1, 2, and 3 • Prices for all non-toner office supplies may be collected from Pool 1 and 2
Ordering decisions based on best value • Besides price other factors are: • Past performance • Special features of the supply or service required for effective program performance • Trade-in considerations • Probable life of the item • Warranty considerations • Maintenance availability • Environmental and energy efficiency considerations • Delivery terms
Orders exceeding the maximum order threshold ($150,000) • The schedule contract maximum order threshold for Office Supplies is $150,000 • Although a price reduction may be sought at any time, this threshold represents the point where, given the dollar value of the potential order, the ordering activity shall seek a price reduction
In addition to following the procedures for orders exceeding the micro purchase threshold ordering activities shall: • Review the pricelists of additional BPA-holders • Based upon the initial evaluation, seek price reductions from the BPA-holder(s) considered to offer the best value (see 8.404(d)); and • After seeking price reductions (see 8.405-4), place the order with the BPA-holder that provides the best value. If further price reductions are not offered, an order may still be placed.
