IT Professional Services (ITPS) Contracts
We are restructuring our (ITPS) statewide contract to create a more consistent and efficient way to buy IT services. The new contracts will address major customer and vendor challenges with the current contract and will provide more opportunities for small, diverse and veteran-owned businesses.
- While we work on the restructure, customers can continue to use our current ITPS statewide contract.
- Check the latest status of the ITPS solicitations through our planned procurements.

What this means for vendors
- You must register in WEBS to bid on contracts.
- When you register in WEBS, we recommend you sign up to receive email notifications of bid opportunities for products or services you sell.
- Vendors on the current ITPS contract must submit a new bid if they want to be on the new contract.
- Once we post a new solicitation, you won’t be able to join the existing contract in that category.
What this means for purchasers
The new ITPS contracts will work the same way as the rest of our statewide contracts. You will be able to select a vendor from the contract. We recommend that you request a minimum of three quotes from vendors, with at least one from a small, diverse, or veteran-owned business.
Purchasers will be able to continue using existing contracts until new contracts are awarded.
