Procurement Policies and Procedures

Fixed Price Bidding

When it is determined that competitive sealed bidding is not practicable or advantageous to Clemson University, and that a Fixed Price Bid is the appropriate source selection method, such determination shall be made in writing and signed by the Director of Procurement. The University may then enter into a contract by competitive fixed price bidding subject to the provisions of Section 11-35-1525 of the Code. All processes for requisitioning, awarding, and contracting apply the same as with competitive sealed bidding, with the exceptions noted in 11-35-1525 of the code.
