NOTE from DFA re: Cooperative (State) Contracts:

Please be advised that effective May 20, 2019, there will be new rules and procedures regarding purchasing from the Sourcewell Cooperative Heavy Equipment contract, our office has adopted. We have identified numerous pieces of equipment, that more than one vendor on the contract sells. Only equipment that is sold by more than one vendor will be considered contract items. If a governmental entity wishes to purchase a piece of equipment from this contract, they will be required to receive quotes from each vendor that sells that piece of equipment. They must take low quote. If the item cost is more than $50,000 and they do not wish to take low quote, normal purchasing procedures must be used for the purchase.

For more information, please contact the Office of Purchasing, Travel and Fleet Management at 601-359-3409 or PurchasingandTravel@dfa.ms.gov.
