State contracts are contracts set up by state purchasing with numerous vendors for the purchase of various specified items for 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, which means purchase orders may be placed immediately for a faster delivery. Also, because of the volume associated with state purchases, the prices are very competitive.
Available State Contracts can be searched on the Office of State Procurement website LA eCAT site.
