State contracts are contracts set up by the Office of State Procurement with numerous vendors for the purchase of various specified items during a given period of time.
The university has the option of purchasing against these state contracts without the necessity of developing specifications or requesting bids, which means purchase orders may be placed immediately for a faster delivery. Also, because of the volume associated with state purchases, the prices are very competitive.
Effective Monday, October 26, 2015, the eCat link will no longer be accessible on the Office of State Procurement website.
Non-State Agencies will shop the statewide contracts through the SRM MDM Internal Catalog. Registration is currently available and agencies are encouraged to proceed with registration.
