BPA awarded in July 2013 under which federal agencies can obtain support for performance management and continuous process improvement by simply writing task orders. BPAs are available for government-wide use through issuance of task orders by any government agency, via the GSA Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) program.
Using the PM/CPI BPA enables agencies to realize faster business transformations and process improvements through services provided by proven market leaders. The BPA establishes teams of the best-qualified PM/CPI service providers. Each team is capable of performing the entire BPA scope. For BPA users, issuing task orders is efficient. GSA provides a portal for information-sharing to facilitate information collection and dissemination. Services include:
- Strategic Planning and Performance Management
- Strategic Business Analysis
- Process and Performance Improvement
- Communications and Change Management
- Training, Certification and Recognition
By using the BPA, your agency can collect and propagate lessons learned, training curriculums, statements of work, best practices, cost-savings data, ordering procedures, and simplified task-order templates. Each issued BPA includes mandatory discounts off GSA MAS prices, which decreases the government's overall spending on management services.
