CHAPTER XX: ATTORNEY GENERAL
PART 1300 ATTORNEY GENERAL'S PROCUREMENT
SECTION 1300.2044 VENDOR LIST/REQUIRED USE
Section 1300.2044 Vendor List/Required Use
a) The CPO may maintain a list of vendors interested in doing business with the OAG. Lists of names and addresses of bidders shall be available for public inspection.
b) Inclusion or exclusion from the vendor list of the name of a business does not indicate whether the business is responsible in respect to a particular procurement or otherwise capable of successfully performing a State contract.
c) Invitations for Bids and other solicitations will be sent to vendors on the vendor list for goods or services in question, except in the following cases:
1) The vendor does not sell the particular commodity or equipment;
2) When the number of vendors for a procurement classification is of such magnitude that optimum prices may reasonably be expected without soliciting the entire vendor list, the OAG may, if it determines that the best interest of the State would be served, rotate the selection from the list on any equitable basis; or
3) The IFB may be confined to bidders in a limited geographical service area, when the OAG determines that the best interests of the State will be served by so doing (example: purchases of ready-mix concrete, perishables, and equipment requiring periodic service).
d) The Procurement Officer in the OAG may alternatively refer to vendor lists maintained by DCMS.
