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 purchase requisition:

  •   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.
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.

Please indicate clearly on your purchase requisition the funding year, as this will help us ensure prompt processing.
