Blanket Purchase Order

An order to buy the same good or service regularly. For example, if a company buys 100 barrels of refined oil every day for a year, it may make a blanket order to cover all barrels for the entire year rather than making separate daily purchase orders. A blanket purchase order may specify the period during which it is effective.
