Sole source purchases allow the district to purchase items that are available from only one source.
The criteria for “sole source” purchases include:
The district is responsible for obtaining and retaining documentation from the vendor that clearly states the reasons the purchase must be made on a sole source basis. The district will require a sole source affidavit and a vendor information form from the vendor. These forms must be sent to any vendor qualifying as a sole source provider. These documents must be complete and on hand in the purchasing department before a purchase will be made.
