We want to inform you of a few deadlines for procurement processes using Fiscal Year
2018 funds. FY2018 funds may be used as long as the purchase order or contract is
executed prior to June 30th. In order to ensure that your procurement can be processed
in time, we have established the following deadlines for receipt of your completed
Remember that although FY2018 purchases will take priority, these deadlines only apply
to procurements that must use FY2018 funding. If you have procurements with FY2019
funding you can continue to submit as normal.
- Procurements that require the Request for Proposal process (criteria other than
low cost): Friday, April 6th
- Procurements that require the Invitation for Bid process (awarded to low cost alone): Friday, May 18th.
- Procurements that do not require a competitive process (i.e. Sole Source, procurement
exempt, etc.): Friday, June 8th.
Please indicate clearly on your purchase requisition the funding year, as this will
help us ensure prompt processing.
