State of Idaho Open Contracts

The Idaho State Legislature passed July 1, 2016, the "State Procurement Act".  The new law allows ISU to use non-contracted vendors when "...the property to be acquired may be procured at equal or less expense..." than the contracted vendor. Documentation of the "equal or less expense" is required for each transaction. Please read the Memo dated November 1, 2016, ISU Departments Using State of Idaho Open Contracts, for specifics.
