  • MS State Purchasing Laws

    The Lawson Requisition Center is the online tool for Departments to request commodities and one-time services based on a quote. Equipment requests are submitted online through SharePoint for the Adult Hospital, Batson Children's Hospital and University Physicians. Equipment requests for all other areas are submitted on a paper requisition.

    The Mississippi State Purchasing Laws are as follows:

    • Requests < (less than) $5,000.00 require one quote
    • Requests between $5,000.00 and $49,999.00 require two (2) written quotes from two (2) separate vendors
    • Requests > (greater than) $50,000.00 require the competitive bid process

    Exception:  Items on an existing UHC, Novation, Medassets, State, or Agency Contract are exempt from the above requirements and do not require a second quote or go through the bidding process.
