Agency-Specific Purchase and Ordering Agreements
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Information Technology Supplies & Suppoart Services (IT Triple S) is a Base Purchase Agreement (BPA) established under GSA's IT Schedule 70 contract vehicle for the Department of Justice (DOJ). This BPA allows the DOJ to procure a variety of IT services and solutions of varying scope and complexity.

These initiatives enable the DOJ to coordinate, simplify, and unify the FBI's IT acquisition process by streamlining its procurement in a way that makes it easier to source innovative IT solutions providers - like Cascades.
