Cooperative Contract Use
October 24, 2019: Per changes with State of Arkansas Procurement Law, the use of cooperative contracts (such as E&I, NASPO, TIPS/TAPS, etc.) are limited and require pre-approval by Office of State Procurement (OSP). If any UA department anticipates procurement of goods or services through any cooperative contract the department must pre-plan and include the Procurement office in advance of request and prior to commencement of any work/service or purchase of goods. Procurement will then send notice of the request to OSP.
Competitive Quote Bids
Competitive Quote Bids are highly encouraged ($20K to $75K) and will help avoid delays with your needs. This is an option for departments instead of requesting purchase through a cooperative contract.
