Sole Source Letters
Sole Source Purchases
SOLE SOURCE DOCUMENTATION IS A TWO-STEP PROCESS:
- The Requisitioner must provide a written explanation and attach it to the requisition detailing why the specific item is needed as opposed to buying a comparable item from another vendor.
- The Requisitioner must attach a letter from the vendor stating that they are the only source for the item(s) requested.
REQUISITIONS $2,500 - $5,000: The above information is required to be attached and filed with the purchase order.
REQUISITIONS OVER $5,000: Requires a written bid by the Purchasing Department in order for the vendor to comply with Onslow County Schools' standard terms and conditions. Submit your requisition, Sole Source Justification Form (see Purchasing/Department Documents), and the vendor's sole source letter to the Procurement and Materials Management Department.
