The State has master contracts with a number of IT vendors to enable state agencies to quickly and efficiently obtain a variety of IT consulting and technical services. Use of this process is limited to service engagements at a cost of $100,000 or less.
As part of the 2016 Open Enrollment for the State’s IT Retainer vendor program, ADS is transitioning administration and management of the program to the Office of Purchasing and Contracting (OPC) at BGS Contracting.
The OPC is currently in the process of standing up new IT Retainer contracts as a result of the Open Enrollment and is posting the new contracts on their website located at the link below.
Additionally, the OPC web page provides:
State agencies with specific instructions on how to use the IT Retainer Vendor program; and
Vendors with instructions and requirements for participating in the program.
ADS will continue to collaborate with OPC in ensuring we have appropriate service categories. Questions regarding the program and to inquire about the status of a Master contract for a specific vendor can be directed to either ADS at SOV.ITContractingandProcurement@vermont.gov or to OPC at SOV.ThePathForward@vermont.gov.
