29.2 Types of awards

29.2.2 Partial and multiple awards

Partial, progressive or multiple awards may be made where it is advantageous to VITA, the procuring agency or the Commonwealth. When the terms and conditions of multiple awards are provided in the invitation for bid or request for proposal, awards may be made to more than one supplier. Unless otherwise specified in the solicitation, agencies may award multi line item procurements, in whole or in part, or on an individual line item basis. In determining whether to make separate line item awards on a multi line item solicitation, consideration should be given to the administrative and management costs to the agency.
