Sole Source Transactions
For transactions over the Higher Education Small Purchase Limits, departments that are processing requisitions for equipment or services that are believed to be available from only one source are instructed to complete Part I of the Sole Source Justification form. A hard copy of this form should be processed with the requisition and an electronic form emailed to the buyer. In the event that the buyer notices information is missing or incomplete, the buyer can contact the department to edit the form. Part I of the form should be completed, except for the section that requires signature of the State Procurement Officer (SPO). After reviewing the form, the buyer will forward to the SPO for approval. Departments should feel free to look up the appropriate Buyer for the commodity or service.
