When making a purchase chargeable to the
ships OPTAR, prepare a DD Form 1348. For
purchases in the United States, its possessions, and
Puerto Rico, use the Order for Supplies or
Services/Request for Quotations, DD Form 1155, and
the General Provisions, DD Form 1155r (reverse side
of the form). Figure 6-15 shows an example of a
completed DD Form 1155.
Blanket Purchase Agreement
A blanket purchase agreement (BPA) is an
arrangement with a vendor to furnish designated
categories of materials for a specific period of time.
BPAs may be requested from a shore supply activity,
but BPAs are not needed afloat. This method of
making small purchases in the open market provides
a simplified procedure of setting up charge accounts
with sources of supply.
Procurement From SERVMART
A SERVMART is a self-service shopping
facility that an ashore supply activity operates to
provide a ready supply of relatively low-cost items
frequently needed by customers in the area. Each
SERVMART issues a SERVMART Shopping Guide
that lists the cognizance symbol, NSN, noun name,
unit of issue, unit price, and storage location
