For smaller purchases under $2,500 departments can approach a business directly for their requirements and make the purchase using a purchase order, a procurement card or accounts payable. The procurement card is a government credit card that makes doing business with us more convenient for you—you get paid right away.
For low value purchases, departments will:
Obtain competitive quotes if the value of the goods, services or construction are less than $10,000: Departments are to obtain competitive quotes wherever possible and award to the bid that provides the best value. They ask for a price and a timeline and anything else that may be important to meeting their needs.
Conduct Invitational Competition if the value of the services or construction is $10,000 and over but $49,999 or less for Services and $99,999 or less for Construction, an invitational competition can be conducted. (not applicable for Goods)
