Instructions for Obtaining Quotes and Placing Purchase Orders
When a DIR Customer identifies a need for deliverables-based services within one of the technology categories the following process takes place:
Customer drafts an initial Statement of Work (SOW) that may be sent to one or more Vendors for that category. Each SOW, which should be unique and distinct for each project, must describe the deliverables, the acceptance criteria and the service levels. For further clarification of the kind of the minimum requirements expected when describing deliverables, acceptance criteria and service levels, download the sample SOW template [PDF, 55KB].
The selected Vendor and Customer then work together to complete the SOW and negotiate pricing in accordance with the SOW. Customer also has the discretion to evaluate responses from other Vendors during this process.
Once both sides negotiate and agree, project requirements and pricing are memorialized by a final SOW that is signed by the authorized representative of both parties.
Customer issues a purchase order (PO) based on the negotiated specifications in accordance with the SOW, and Vendor begins work upon receipt of PO. Vendor then invoices Customer. The PO must reference the DIR contract number.
State agencies are required to submit Statements of Work (SOW) to DIR for review prior to the submission to a vendor. SOW requirements are for state agencies only.
