Our procurement team posts contract and competitive solicitation process documentation on our website under each individual vendor's awarded contract page. You can review these documents in the “Contract Documents” section. If you can’t find it, please request it by contacting the Sourcewell Contract Administrator listed on the vendor's page.
You can also see sample pricing for most contracts in the “Pricing” section. Due to pricing complexity, we recommend contacting the vendor for a customized quote. In compliance with MN Data Practices, we provide additional procurement files upon request. Simply contact the Sourcewell Contract Administrator listed on the vendor's contract page.
We award contracts at the manufacturer level when possible. Our contract awards to manufacturers are made on behalf of that manufacturer’s dealer network. Likewise, contract awards to a reseller are made on behalf of the reseller’s manufacturers.
In many cases, some products or equipment are only available through resellers.
Either way, you will always have a single awarded contractor who takes responsibility for all third-party subcontractors. As a result of our contracting reputation, we can award contracts to quality vendors you can trust.
