Procurement Policies and Procedures

Award to Other Than Low Bidder

The issuance of awards to other than the low bidder is allowed only after determination that the low bidder does not meet all specifications, cannot deliver on schedule, or for any other reason cannot fulfill the requirements as stated in the invitation for bid. Before issuing the award to another vendor, proper written justification must be forwarded to the Director of Procurement for approval (see Exhibit 23).
