More info

Many Statewide Contracts have limitations on the number of contracts to be awarded.  This means that not all bidders who meet the Mandatory Requirements will be awarded a contract.

Your company becomes a Statewide Contractor once all contract documents are executed by OSD and the Contract Manager sends an award notification.
