Preparing a Proposal

We encourage you to contact the Procurement Services if your proposal requests significant funding for equipment, supplies, or services. Procurement Services can determine whether your planned purchases will be subject to bid requirements or can be justified as sole or single source to a particular supplier. They can also help you negotiate the best price and delivery and payment terms.

It is important to remember that all purchases must follow Rensselaer Procurement Guidelines, which comply with requirements of the Uniform Guide, regardless of whether your proposal budget listed specific manufacturers or model numbers.

If your proposal requires a subcontracting plan outlining planned purchases from small or minority businesses (common with New York State solicitations), Procurement Services will help you identify available sources and prepare the plan document.
