DGS Solicitations

Blue RFP Binders

The Department of General Services Contracting and Procurement division procures goods and services to satisfy the construction and maintenance activities of the agency. This is done through the utilization of three primary procurement methods:

  • Invitation for Bid (IFB): The solicitation document used for competitive sealed bidding for the purchase of equipment, materials, goods and construction, Link to Presentation

  • Request for Proposal (RFP): The solicitation document used in the competitive sealed proposal process. The RFP procedure permits negotiation of proposals and prices. Link to Presentation

  • Request for Quote (RFQ): The solicitation document used in competitive procurement is awarded to the lowest bidder.  Factors such as technical or professional skills and experience are also considered when making awards to a vendor.

Most DGS contracts will be procured through one of these three methods. All commodities or services previously issued under BPAs will now be subject to competition using one of the methods described above. Current BPAs will expire and be replaced by ID/IQ contracts. Contract awards in excess of $100,000 are based on IFB and RFP procurement methods.
