State Contracts

State contracts are contracts established by the Office of State Purchasing with 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. This results in purchase
orders being expedited for a faster delivery. Also, because of the volume associated
with state purchases, most prices are very competitive.
