i A Grantee purchasing any single piece of equipment, single service or multiples of each that cost up to $15,000 may do so by proving reasonableness of price. One method of proving reasonableness of price is to obtain three quotations from responsible vendors, on the vendor’s letterhead. A description of the selection process must be maintained, as well as a record of the quotations.

ii Goods or services or multiples of each that have an aggregate cost between $15,000 up to $50,000 may be obtained by advertising the opportunity in a reasonable manner and in an appropriate venue for a reasonable period of time. Reasonableness of price must be proven; obtaining three quotations as in (i) above may be used. A record must be maintained of the advertisement, the quotations, and the selection process.

iii A Grantee expending over $50,000 must use a formal competitive bidding process. Guidance may be obtained from DHSES. At a minimum, the competitive bidding process must incorporate the following: open, fair advertisement of the opportunity to provide the goods or services; equal provision of the information to all interested parties; reasonable deadlines; establishment of the methodology for evaluating bids before the bids are opened; sealed bids opened at one time before a committee who will certify the process; and maintenance of a record of the competitive procurement process.
