Methods of Procurement
The appropriate procurement method to use depends on the dollar amount of the expected purchase. Sponsors should evaluate what goods or services are needed and for how long, then determine which procurement method to use based on the estimated dollar value of the purchase, the “purchasing threshold”. All procurement must be conducted in a manner that maximizes free and open competition.
