  • Agency Contracts

    Agency contracts are agreements between UMMC and a vendor, wherein UMMC purchases specific products from the supplier for a specified period of time and, in most cases, at firm pricing. Agency contracts are established on the basis of competitive bids or negotiation. Agency contracts are approved by the State Office of Purchasing and Travel (OPT) and may last for up to five years. The agency contract must be approved by OPT prior to any purchases being made.

    Since an "Agency Contract" is "an executed contract between the vendor and UMMC", these are executed and submitted to DFA for approval by Contracts Administration.  Please refer to the Contracts Administration website for further information.

    A current list of UMMC's Agency Contracts is available by contacting Contracts Administration at (601) 815-3872.
