Contract Management is an integral part of the purchasing function and contract development often begins with the creation of a solicitation for goods or services. Once a contract has been put in place, it will be administered by the Purchasing Department.
All Contracts and/or Agreements are to be reviewed by the Purchasing Department before signature. In most cases, they will need to be signed by the Senior Vice President for Business and Finance.
State Contracts(aka Statewide Contracts or SWCs) have been awarded by the State of Georgia and we are allowed to purchase from them without further competitive bidding. Current SWCs can be seen at: http://doas.ga.gov/state-purchasing/statewide-contracts.
Agency Contracts have been completed and awarded by UNG. They typically run from year-to-year with renewal options extending them up to five (5) years. All departments using an Agency Contract will fill out a vendor evaluation sheet at the end of each fiscal year. A list of current Agency Contracts can be viewed at:
