National Institutes of Health (NIH) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)

A NIH Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) is a simplified method of filling anticipated repetitive needs for supplies or services by establishing "charge accounts" with qualified sources of supply (FAR 13.303‐1). A BPA is an agreement (not a contract) between the NIH and the vendor who will be furnishing supplies and/or services to NIH. Currently, NIH maintains over 900 Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) and Open Market (O/M) BPAs covering a wide range of supplies and services. Learn More.


The purpose of the NIH BPA is to acquire supplies, services, equipment and/or hardware that align with the NIH/HHS needs. NIH has established a BPA with NETE to better satisfy NIH's recurring needs for the "best value" and specialized IT services which NETE delivers to the government. The NETE NIH BPA is based on the pricing established by our GSA Schedule IT 70. NETE offers Management Consulting and Information Technology services through established labor categories to NIH buyers in any of the Institutes and Centers (ICs) that participate. Services for up to $500,000 can be purchased through NETE NIH BPA.
