GSA 2nd Generation Information Technology Blanket Purchase Agreement (2GIT)
The Second Generation Information Technology (2GIT) Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) contain attributes not found in other IT commodity acquisition solutions within the Federal Government. Further, the 2GIT BPAs are based on direct customer feedback, a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Air Force, and include strategic sourcing attributes such as data collection and reporting.
With this approach the U.S. Air Force has decided to make the 2GIT BPAs a mandatory use vehicle for the replacement of the NETCENTS-2 Products IDIQ contract. Use of Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) BPAs eliminates contracting and open market costs such as: the search for sources; and the development of technical documents and solicitations. These BPAs will further decrease costs, reduce paperwork and save time by eliminating the need for repetitive, individual purchases from the GSA Schedule contract. The end result is a purchasing mechanism for the Government that works better and costs less.
