The following is a step by step process for executing a procurement from the DIR DBITS contract:
Customer creates an SOW for services. The SOW must be complete, signed by an authorized representative of Customer.
Customer Releases SOW to one or more approved DBITS vendor(s) of their choice in the selected category. Response timeline is at the Customers discretion.
Customer evaluates response(s) and selects a vendor.
Customer issues a Purchase Order. Vendor understands that no work under any SOW issued by Customer shall commence until receipt of Purchase Order.
Additional information about the delivery and negotiation process:
Service provided under this Contract shall be based on a Statement of Work.
Customers may negotiate the terms and conditions of a SOW to suit their business needs, so long as the SOW terms and conditions do not conflict with or weaken the terms of the DIR DBITs Contract. Vendor shall perform its work in compliance with the DIR DBITS Contract and the agreed upon Statement of Work with Customer.
Customers purchasing services under the DIR DBITS Contract shall negotiate pricing directly with the Vendor in accordance with the Customer’s Statement of Work.
Pricing will be provided for each Statement of Work, and will depend upon the nature of the work assignment.
