La. Admin. Code tit. 34, § V-1109 - Source Selection Methods [Formerly LAC 34:I.1109]

Current through Register Vol. 48, No. 3, March 20, 2022

A. General. The source selection method used shall be selected with a view to the end of assuring that the required supplies, services, or major repair items are procured in time to meet the emergency. Given this constraint, such competition as is practicable should be obtained. Any offer accepted shall be confirmed in writing.
B. After Unsuccessful Competitive Sealed Bidding. Competitive sealed bidding is unsuccessful when bids received pursuant to an invitation to bid are unreasonable, noncompetitive, or the low bid exceeds available funds as certified by the appropriate fiscal officer, and time or other circumstances will not permit the delay required to resolicit competitive sealed bids. If emergency conditions exist after or are brought about by an unsuccessful attempt to use competitive sealed bidding, an emergency procurement may be made.
