Currently, our national contracting office does not allow Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs)for the removal & disposal of hazardous wastes (or for any other facility need for that matter). The only option available is single procurements when above credit card limit (artificially set at $3,000 limit). This results in long residence time for stored hazardous wastes - resulting in unsafe, dangerous conditions which are counter to EPA regulations. Setting up annual regional BPAs for this and other operational services saves thousands of dollars and thousands of workforce hours per year.
