Procurement Vehicles

  • GPOExpress℠ Federal agencies can have direct access to services at FedEx Office℠ locations worldwide by using a GPOExpress℠ Card. Agencies receive significant discounts and benefits on their printing and finishing needs at any store location at any time.
  • One-Time Bids Large or complex projects procured using a formal bidding process.
  • Simplified Purchase Agreement (SPA) SPAs put the control in the hands of the customers. This is a streamlined vehicle for agencies to acquire printing, related publishing, and digital services valued up to $10,000 from qualified commercial vendors.
  • Small Purchases Projects under $100,000, procured using a quicker contracting method than a One-Time Bid.
  • Term Contracts Contracts that support repetitive orders for a similar product or service over a period of time (1-5 years). Each contract allows for simple, convenient ordering directly from the customer agency to the contractor. Estimates for individual orders are easily produced from a contract schedule of prices that are fixed for the contract period.
    • Single Award – when one vendor can satisfy our customer requirements
    • Multiple Award – when multiple vendors would be better positioned to meet our customer’s requirements
