Purchasing Policies and Resources

NORTH DAKOTA STATE POLICY - PURCHASING FROM GSA

North Dakota Century Code (NDCC) section 54-44.4-13 gives the North Dakota Office of Management and Budget (OMB) authority to purchase from GSA contracts if it is determined to be in the best interest of the State after consideration of: 

OMB must also determine that the contracts were awarded through full and open competition or source selection methods specified in section 54-44.4-05 and send notice to approved vendors of the office's intent to make a cooperative purchase.

State agencies that desire to purchase from GS contracts must submit an Alternate Procurement Request (SFN51403) to the OMB State Procurement Office.  OMB will then make a determination in accordance with NDCC section 54-44.4-13.

GSA SCHEDULE CONTRACTS

What is a Schedule? A Schedule is a grouping of Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts for similar products and service offerings awarded to commercial providers of products and services. Schedules contain multiple-award contracts that provide customers with access to a large variety of small, local, large and global contractors for commonly sought after products and services.  Schedules are named through a numbering system and description, such as Schedule 70 – Information Technology.

Special Item Numbers (SINs) are then used to further group product and services within a Schedule contracts.  For example, Schedule 70, the Information Technology Schedule,  is broken down into SINs that better define specific areas of Information Technology.  For example, SIN132-51 covers IT professional service, such as database planning and design and network support services. 

GSA has seven programs available to state and local governments.  Four of these programs are Schedules-based.

 

 

GSA PRICING

The pricing listed on Schedule contracts is a ceiling price based on the contract terms and conditions. 

The Schedule contractor cannot provide higher pricing when selling through their Schedule contract, but they can provide discounts to customers off of their pricing when the customer is purchasing through an authorized Schedule program. These additional discounts are known as spot reductions, and any GSA Schedule contractor can offer the discounts to any authorized user, which includes state and local governments, when engaging in negotiations or a head-to-head competition for a task order award off of the Schedule contract.

In fact, GSA encourages all Schedules Program users to request discounts when placing orders against the Schedule contracts. It is ultimately up to the contractor to determine the size of discount.

 

GSA NON-SCHEDULE CONTRACTS

GSA also offers three non-Schedule-based programs:
