Purpose: This chapter sets forth required and valuable award and post-award information technology (IT) procurement policies and guidelines.
Upon completion of negotiations, if applicable, and before awarding any IT contract, the assigned procurement lead must validate the supplier is in compliance with certain critical contractual or statutory requisites.
Unless exempted through legislation, before awarding any IT contract valued at $250,000 or greater, or a contract for a major project, agencies must obtain required VITA reviews and approvals. Additionally, the Procurement Governance Review (PGR) process must be followed for any technology investment valued at $250,000 or greater.
It is recommended that within 30 days of contract award, a contract kick-off meeting be conducted.
