Attorney General Opinion No. 79-79

An agency’s authority when submitting a requisition to the Purchasing Division is limited to quantitative needs and the general class or nature of the acquisition and is subject to the State Purchasing Director’s exclusive and specific authority to determine the particular brand, model or specific classification of an item. The State Purchasing Director is not restricted to exact specifications in an agency’s requisition other than a sole source acquisition. See also 74 O.S. §§85.4, 85.5 and 85.45j.
