The Procurement Division's One-Time Acquisitions (OTA) Unit conducts procurements on behalf of state departments for purchases that exceed a department's delegated purchasing authority.
OTA conducts both information technology (IT) goods and services* and non-information technology (non-IT) goods procurements. We work in a collaborative effort with the department personnel and Procurement Division buyers, engineers, and management to conduct successful procurements.
These procurements are conducted in accordance with the State Contracting Manual (SCM) Volumes II and III, State Administrative Manual (SAM) 3500/3600 and 5200, and other applicable rules, guidelines, and codes.
To begin the procurement process, departments are required to submit purchase estimates (STD. 66) directly to the Intake and Analysis Unit (IAU) for processing.
