Amarillo College Purchasing Guide

Bidding Requirements (Per AC Board of Regents)

Informal quotes are required for orders totaling over $1,000 but less than $10,000.  Three competitive quotes are required for orders totalling $10,000 but less than $50,000 and must be attached to the requisition.  Orders totaling $50,000 or more require cabinet member approval to begin process of formal written proposals/bids, be advertised in the legal notices of the newspaper, and be awarded by the AC Board of Regents at their board meeting.  Allow at least six weeks for processing and board approval. 

Special contract pricing:  Amarillo College is able to purchase items (such as computer hardware and software, telecommunication and audio visual equipment) from the State of Texas Contracts that are awarded by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts and the State of Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) without formal advertised bids/proposals.  If the order is $50,000 or more, the Board of Regents must approve the purchase regardless of what funds are being used (restricted or unrestricted funds).
