Useful Contracts

One of the procurement tools you can use for your acquisitions, at any dollar level and without additional competition, is existing contracts awarded by other public agencies (universities, colleges, cities, states, etc.) or cooperative purchasing groups (e.g., E&I Cooperative Services, OMNIA Partners, and Sourcewell). Often referred to as piggyback/adoptable contracts, these contracts can save time, money and resources, as well as leverage spend and economies of scale.

Procurement Services makes the final decision as to whether the contract presented for piggybacking can be utilized by UCF, based on all procurement policies and regulations, so please request a review from Procurement Services before initiating a contract with the intent of using a contract you believe can be piggybacked.
