7.1.10 Establishing mandatory use statewide contracts

In the event VITA awards a statewide contract for IT goods or services to a qualified DSBSD-certified small business, VITA may, at its discretion, make the use of such contract mandatory for agencies and institutions of higher education, except those explicitly exempted by the Code of Virginia. Mandatory contracts are designated as such in the actual contract document, which may be accessed for viewing on VITA's Web site at: https://vita.cobblestonesystems.com/public/.
