Once a vendor is selected on a BPA Setup or IDIQ contract (i.e. the parent document), the subsequent BPA Calls and Delivery/Task Orders (i.e. the child document) will be awarded to that same vendor. If the awarding vendor should be changed to a new vendor, a modification to the parent document must first be released that changes the vendor. Then, any new child documents created from the parent document will be awarded to the new vendor. If an existing BPA Call or Delivery/Task Order needs to be awarded to the new vendor after the parent document is modified, a modification of the child document can be created and released that will refresh the vendor information.


Note: Although the application supports this functionality by default, users should always comply with their Agency's business process and regulations in regards to vendor changes for existing awards.
