Sole Source Purchases

Utah State University abides by Section R33-3-401 of the Utah Administrative Code covering sole source purchases. A contract may be awarded for a supply, service, or construction item without competition when under the rules and regulations the Director of Purchasing Services, or his designee, determine in writing that there is only one source. Contact the buyer for the commodities in question and for assistance in determining whether or not your requested goods or services qualify for sole source classification. If so, a Sole Source Request sheet must be completed and forwarded to Purchasing Services with the requisition.
