In most circumstances, Idaho State University will purchase material, equipment, supplies, and services via competitive means. However, the University may forgo the competitive/solicitation process and approve sole source procurements provided the end-user can adequately demonstrate only one vendor that can provide the good or service. A sole source may be waived if the property is for a life-threatening situation or a situation that puts public welfare or property in immediate danger. In accordance with Idaho State University policy and Idaho Statue, 67-9232, the Purchasing Department shall post notice of any sole source procurement on this website.
Note: If there are no notices listed below then ISU does not have a sole source to consider at this time.
