Competition Requirements and Supplier Selection

Proposed purchases of goods or services with a dollar value of at least $10,000 (a) require a contract and (b) must be competitively bid or accompanied by a sole source justification request.  Georgetown University strongly encourages competitive bidding.  Sole source justification requests will be evaluated by the Chief Procurement Officer and may be denied. For purchases between $10,000 and $25,000, at least two written bids are required.  For purchases above $25,000, at least three written bids are required.  For bidding-related guidance or suggestions, please contact Georgetown Sourcing & Procurement Services at
