The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Directorate of Public Works (DPW) requires commercial sources for the procurement of Plastic Supplies in order to accomplish their mission in supporting the ERDC Laboratories. ERDC intends to establish three (3) to five (5) Master Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA's) in order to facilitate the procurement of these supplies. A BPA is a simplified method of filling anticipated repetitive needs for supplies by establishing "charge accounts" with qualified sources of supply. Pursuant to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 13.303, Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs), the Contractor agrees to the identified terms and conditions for a BPA to provide the required Plastic Supplies exclusively with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC).
If and when requested, the vendor shall provide Plastic Supplies which may include, but are not limited to:
Shapes - Plastic Sheet, Rods and Tube/Pipe, etc.
Types - PVC Sheets, High Density Polyethylene, Acrylic, Plexiglass, Polycarbonate, Polystyrene, Nylon, Cell Cast, Extruded, ABS, Fiberglass, etc.
The Plastic Supplies will be delivered to the ERDC Vicksburg, MS, campus or other local Vicksburg work sites as required.
Delivery for ordered Plastic Supplies shall be FOB Destination, ERDC Vicksburg, 3909 Halls Ferry Road, Vicksburg, MS 39180.
Common commercial Plastic Supplies and materials shall be readily available within 24 hours from the time the order is placed.
The Master Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) does not obligate any funds. The government shall be obligated only to the extent of authorized purchases actually made via a properly executed BPA Call.
The Government estimates, but does not guarantee, that the total volume of purchases through this agreement will be $175,000.00. Individual purchases shall not exceed the simplified acquisition threshold which is currently $150,000.00. There shall be no guaranteed minimum or maximum order limits established and no guaranteed dollar amount of expenditures with the vendor.
Actual purchases will be made via properly executed BPA Call's. These calls will be initiated at the time the supplies are needed by an authorized representative of the Contracting Office or by a warranted Contracting Officer.
