1.DFARS Section 208.74 directs DoD software buyers and requiring officials to check the DoD ESI website for DoD inventory or an ESA before using another method of acquisition. These steps for the buyer are summarized from the DFARS:

a. Check the Enterprise Agreement Summary Table to determine if software rights or related services have already been acquired and are available from DoD inventory. If they are available, then acquire the designated software from DoD inventory and reimburse the SPM.

b. If the required software rights or related services are not available from inventory or from an ESA, then use an alternate method of acquisition, subject to laws and policy.

c. If the required software rights or related services are not available from inventory but are available from an ESA, then review the terms and conditions and prices, in accordance with otherwise applicable source selection requirements. Per FAR 8.405-3(b)(2), where multiple BPAs are available, before placing an order exceeding the micro-purchase threshold, forward the requirement to the BPA holders with request for spot discounts and evaluate the responses received to determine which BPA holder represents the best value.

d. If existing ESAs do not represent the best value to the Government for the software rights or related services, then seek a waiver from the SPM before continuing with alternative acquisition methods.

2. Delivery Orders.The scope of this effort is worldwide. Delivery requirements and administration will be stipulated on Delivery Orders. Ordering via this BPA is decentralized. Orders are prepared by a Government Ordering Officer (a duly warranted Contracting Officer whose warrant authorizes delivery orders from the GSA Schedule), in accordance with the terms and conditions of this BPA and the GSA Schedule. Orders may be placed by Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), credit card, facsimile, on an authorized form such as a Standard Form (SF) 1449 or Department of Defense (DD) Form 1155.

a. Notice to Ordering Offices:When ordering services, ordering offices are responsible for compliance with GSA’s Ordering Procedures for Services and DFARS 208.404-70.

b.Placement of Orders:

(1) Assisted Orders:The Contracting Officer that administers the BPA may, occasionally, issue the delivery order for a specific requirement as an extra service for an ESI customer. This is called an “assisted order” and it may be appropriate for an additional contracting service fee to be charged. When this is the case, it must be recognized that those contracting fees are not a part of the ESA.

(2) Government-wide Purchase Card Orders:Contact any one of Carahsoft Technology Corp.'s POCs below, fax your order to 703-871-8505 or go to their World Wide Web (www) page for information and ordering (

(3) SF1449 Orders:Process SF1449s through the servicing base contracting office.
