The following standard procedures (SP) govern the procurement activities of the State Procurement Office and most State agencies.
NOTE: The Standard Procedures are provided as a resource to the Procurement Officers of the Agencies, Boards and Commissions of the State of Arizona. While the Standard Procedures are an example of a legally compliant, procedurally efficient and fiscally prudent process, they are not intended to represent the only such process allowable under the Arizona Procurement Code, A.R.S. §41-2501, et. Seq. Depending on the circumstances surrounding a given procurement, deviation from a Standard Procedure may be necessary and/or preferable. Procurement Officers should consult with their Agency Chief procurement Officer and/or the State Procurement Office if they have any questions regarding the application of this Standard Process.
