Courtesy Postings

In order to help public entities meet requirements of Utah Code 63G-6a-112 or any public notice requirements, the State of Utah Division of Purchasing is offering Courtesy Posting Services to any public entity within the State of Utah.

Courtesy Posting Services by the Division of Purchasing include the following:

  • Posting the public entity’s solicitation.
  • Assisting public entities in making purchases from the State of Utah “Best Value” Cooperative Contracts.
  • Conducting reviews of the solicitation documents provided by the public entity to ensure compliance with the Utah Procurement Code.
  • Making recommendations for changes if specifications and/or processes are out of compliance or not clearly articulated. (Note: The public entity will not be forced to accept recommendations as part of the courtesy posting service.)
  • Posting the solicitation documents on SciQuest, for and in behalf of the public entity.
  • If required, receiving the bid/proposals electronically through SciQuest and forwarding to public entity for evaluation and selection.
  • Assisting the public entity with solicitation development, including technical research and writing assistance, solicitation document preparation, etc.
  • Assisting the public entity in the evaluation of the bids/proposals received by the public entity.
  • Assisting in drafting contract documents.
  • Providing all other procurement related events.

The Courtesy Posting Services offered by the State of Utah will be performed free of charge as part of the Division of Purchasing’s mission to help public entities with their procurements and to grow the Utah Cooperative. As such, if the procurement item requested is currently on a State Cooperative “Best Value” Contract, the Division of Purchasing will not assist with the procurement if the public entity does not want to purchase from the State Cooperative “Best Value” Contract.

If a public entity would like the Division of Purchasing to provide it with any Courtesy Posting Services, please email your request to

      Pre-Qualified/Approved Vendor Lists and Set Aside Contracts

      Pre-Qualified and Approved Vendor Lists are vendors that have responded to a Request for Statement of Qualifications and received master agreements.  These lists can then be used by public entities to further restrict who is able to respond to a solicitation to only those vendors on the approved list.

      Set Aside and Community Rehabilitation Contracts are put in place to facilitate the procurement of goods and services from community rehabilitation programs.  These are set in place in accordance with State Code 63G-6a-805.

      Rangeland Pre-Qualified List

      The following rangeland contractors responded to a Request for Statement of Qualifications as set forth by the Utah Procurement Code part 63G-6a-403, and the Utah Procurement Rules R33-4-101. When a rangeland project referenced on this list is required, state agencies at their option may request that the competition be limited to the contractors who are on this list. Note that agencies may also open the competition up to all contractors and not use this list for a specific requirement when the agency feels it is in their best interests to do so.

      To use this list, simply indicate on your RQS (requisition) or (preferably) on the statement of work submitted to State Purchasing that you are requesting that the competition be limited to pre-qualified contractors.

      Questions on this new pre-qualification list and/or the process should be directed to any member within the Land Pod with the GovOps Division of Purchasing.  Please refer to our Pod breakdown list for current members.
