Blanket Purchase Order - A type of purchase order used for small commodity-type purchases that are bought often, such as maintenance supplies, utilities, and food; or for services such as miscellaneous repairs. Blanket PO's in the amount up to $25,000 can be created for small purchases not to exceed $1,000 per day.

Blanket PO: A purchase order (PO) issued to a specific supplier for a specific dollar amount to cover all authorized purchases from that supplier until the amount available runs out.

Portanto, "contrato de compra" ou "contrato de compra geral".

Pedido Total (é um pedido grande que é enviado em várias remessas, em alemão se diz "Rahmenauftrag")

creio que "blanket", nesse contexto, quer dizer "geral", "total" (envolvente, que cobre tudo)

[O 'Thesaurus' do American Dictionary dá:
4. (adj.) Applying to or covering all instances or conditions:
• absolute
• arrant
• complete
• full
• plenary
• total
• unqualified
• unrestricted
• wholesale
• partial (antonym)
E o dicionário dá: {Am.Herit.}
1. Applying to or covering all conditions or instances: a blanket insurance policy. 2. Applying to or covering all members of a class: blanket sanctions against human-rights violators.

Obs.: No mercado de investimentos pode significar um tipo de "cobertura", vide em http://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/default.asp ("blanket bond" and "blanket lien")

Q. What is the difference between a Blanket PO and a regular PO?

A regular PO is used for a one-time purchase and a blanket PO is used when the intention of the department is to make multiple purchases frequently from the same vendor using the same budget code. A blanket PO is set up for a specified period of time, usually one fiscal year.

Q. What about Open Purchase Orders?
An Open Purchase Order is similar to a Blanket PO except that, unlike a Blanket PO, the Open PO has a fixed budget number and the funds on the order are encumbered.

[\"blanket PO numbers\" talvez seja: números das remessas]

É que trabalhei com isso e tinha clientes que faziam os \"Rahmenauftrags\" (são os \"blankets PO\" em inglês, os termos são sinônimos, não consegui encontrar o sinônimo em português). No início do ano, o cliente encomendava um \"x\" de mercadorias, a serem despachadas em tais e tais épocas.

Blanket Purchase Order- Should be used for repetitive purchases, for a particular supplier of goods or services which may include multiple shipments; Volume requirements yield additional discounts (those terms will be attached to the PO); Leasing office equipment; or a maintenance agreement for goods or services; other items to be identified. Blankets should include:

the period of time for the performance
clear indication of the purpose of the blanket
Not To Exceed amount for the blanket
Scope of goods or services to be included or not
person authorized to issue releases against the blanket
After a blanket is issued, the department is responsible for the following:

Placing the order to the company using the Blanket PO# as reference
Arranging delivery
Approving the invoice and forwarding to Accounts Payable:

If the amount is fixed, the dean or department head will need to authorize automatic payment
Invoices not returned within 15 days and $500 or less will be processed for payment
The correct blanket PO# must be clearly visible on the invoice

At the end of the fiscal year, all blankets will be closed and reopened with new blanket PO#s. Any money remaining encumbered will automatically be released into the respective budget that requested the blanket. Each department is responsible for the re-issuing of all blanket orders for the following fiscal year unless prior approval is given by the department to extend the expenditures for certain agreements.
