Sole Source

Initiate a sole source purchase

If an item is more than $5,000 and can only be purchased from one supplier, there is a chance that the purchase is considered a sole source.

  1. Confirm that your good or service is a sole source purchase by contacting the University Procurement Services category team.

       2.  If the purchase is a sole source, create a requisition in RU Marketplace.

       3.  Complete the sole source form.

       4.  University Procurement Services reviews the form for approval and will contact you if there are
             any issues or questions.

       5.  Verify whether there is a separate contract that needs to be to executed prior to purchase order issuance.

       6.  Attach form and proposed contract, if required.
