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 may email ITDProcurement@nd.gov to request a procurement review or general IT procurement assistance.
ITD reviews and approves IT-related procurements that exceed the threshold set by OMB for small purchases ($25,000). 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. In addition on large IT projects > $500k the state's procurement collaboration process is followed.
