Procurement Standards

<< Previous PagePage 3 of 3Next Topic: Reports & Records >>

Recipients should have their own procurement procedures in place that reflect applicable state and local laws and regulations, as long as those procedures conform to the applicable HHS regulations.

Recipients shall avoid real or perceived conflicts of interest and non-competitive practices among contractors when procuring with Federal funds. Procurement shall be conducted in a manner to provide, to the maximum extent practical, open and free competition.

In order to ensure objective contractor performance and eliminate unfair competitive advantage, contractors that develop or draft applications, or contract specifications, requirements, statements of work, invitations for bids, and/or requests for proposals shall be excluded from competing for such procurements.
