74 O.S. § 85.44A. Court Order Requiring Purchases of Goods or Services

A court order requiring the purchase of certain goods or services by a state agency, whether or not such state agency is subject to the Oklahoma Central Purchasing Act, shall not invalidate competitive bidding procedures required pursuant to Section 85.7 of Title 74 of the Oklahoma Statutes if such court order does not specify specific suppliers or providers. Any such purchase of goods or services shall comply with competitive bid procedures.

Associated Rules

    2. a court order directs the state agency to make an acquisition from a specified supplier or provider.
  2. Approval of waiver request. After the request is reviewed, the OMES Director shall notify the state agency of the approval, conditional approval or denial of the waiver request.
