BASIC GUIDELINES FOR USING
“CONTRACTOR TEAM ARRANGEMENTS”

These Team Arrangements can be included under a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA).  BPAs are permitted under all Federal Supply Schedule contracts.

Orders under a Team Arrangement are subject to terms and conditions or the Federal Supply Schedule Contract.

Participation in a Team Arrangement is limited to Federal Supply Schedule Contractors.

Customers should refer to FAR 9.6 for specific details on Team Arrangements.

·         Federal Supply Schedule Contractors may individually meet the customers needs, or -

·         Federal Supply Schedule Contractors may individually submit a Schedules “Team Solution” to meet the customer’s requirement.
