PROCUREMENT METHODS

The Maryland Department of Commerce uses five primary procurement approaches:

  1. Small Procurements (Up to $5,000) - Division staff request necessary services/commodities via a requisition through the Office of Contracts and Procurement. Whenever possible, payment is made using the State of Maryland Purchasing Card.

  2. Small Procurements ($5,001 - $15,000) - Services/commodities must be processed by request for quote when they cannot be obtained through statewide contracts or a preferred provider. Three (3) quotes must be obtained from qualified vendors.

  3. Small Procurements ($15,001 - $50,000) - Services/commodities must be processed by written specification; competitively solicited and advertised on eMaryland Marketplace for a minimum of 3 days when they cannot be obtained through statewide contracts or a preferred provider.

  4. Large Procurements ($50,001 and above) - Services/commodities must be processed by written specification; competitively solicited and advertised on eMaryland Marketplace for a minimum of 30 days when they cannot be obtained through statewide contracts or a preferred provider.

  5. Unsolicited Proposal Procurements - The agency entertains unsolicited proposals from vendors for possible contracting opportunities. Contact Robert "Carter" Ward, Director of Contracts and Procurement via email or call 410-767-2211 for more information.
