COMMODITY: Computer Software Maintenance (Sole Source) – Listed Items Only

Governor’s approval has been received to waive sealed bid procedures for computer software maintenance that is provided by a sole source and therefore cannot be put out for bid. The waiver mainly covers system software unique to a manufacturer’s machine, but also includes other types of specialized and highly customizable software.

This waiver applies only to purchases specifically included on the list preapproved by the Governor. To make a purchase that has not been preapproved, please contact the UW System Office of Procurement so that we can submit a request for additional approval. For approved transactions, please reference the Governor’s approval case number on all purchasing documents and send a copy to the UW System Office of Procurement.
