Federally-Based Contracts

Delegated Purchase Authorization (DPA) Purchases and Contracts Via Federally-Based Programs, including but not limited to the U.S. General Services Administration (“GSA”), the Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”), and the Defense Logistics Agency (“DLA”).

An Agency seeking to purchase goods or services through a Federally-Based Contract may proceed when it demonstrates one (1) or more of the following:

Note: If the goods or services are not available under State contract and are within the Agency's DPA, then the Agency must follow the process for DPA purchases as set forth in the DPA Circular. Federal Supply Schedules may be used as a resource for identifying and seeking the required three (3) DPA quotations.

The procedure to award a State contract based off a Federally-Based Contract, can be viewed on the circular “Purchases From Federal Supply Schedules or Schedules of Other Federal Procurement Programs” Click here. Term Contracts that begin with a “G” signify that the contract is a Federally-Based contract.
