IT Procurement

ITD provides review, consultation, and general assistance to North Dakota agencies regarding IT procurement and contracting best practices.

ITD is responsible for reviewing and approving the acquisition of technology by state agencies, as defined in ND Century Code (Chapter 54-59-05).


  • Agencies can leverage resources that have been tailored specifically for IT product and services acquisitions. ITD works closely with OMB State Procurement, Risk Management and the Office of Attorney General to develop RFP and contract templates and best practices related to IT procurements.
  • Agency procurement staff can receive assistance and advice regarding their IT procurement projects.
  • ITD works in cooperation with the State Procurement Office to develop State Term Contracts for IT products and services used on an enterprise scale.

Requesting Service

Agencies may email ITDProcurement@nd.gov to submit a request for ITD IT procurement staff to review/approve a procurement request and also for general IT procurement assistance. Contact the Service Desk to speak to a member of the IT procurement staff.

Primary review criteria includes compliance with state enterprise architecture standards and consistency with an agency's technology plan. ITD and OMB also review and approve requests to host IT solutions outside of the consolidated infrastructure hosted by ITD.
