All State Fund procurement of capital equipment, goods, and services is performed through our Enterprise Procurement Department.

What We Do

The Enterprise Procurement Department at State Fund is solely responsible for all sourcing and contracting to support the operational needs and strategic objectives of State Fund. The Enterprise Procurement Manager and his/her delegated staff are solely authorized to act as State Fund’s agents in securing contracts and/or purchase orders to procure capital equipment, goods, and services for State Fund.

The Buying Process

Upon selection, your company information is input into our database. Our Category Specialists will contact you when the need arises to purchase your product(s) and/or service(s). We do not encourage unsolicited calls to any of State Fund’s offices. If you are contacted by an employee, please respond accordingly.

All purchasing is centralized at State Fund. No employee outside of the Enterprise Procurement Unit is recognized to act as an authorized agent of State Fund. All contracts, purchase orders for goods and services, and signatures must come from the Enterprise Procurement Unit, including signatures required for your contracts.

Depending upon the type of goods or services required, our selection process may consist of any of these processes:
  • RFI - Request for Information
  • RFP - Request for Proposal
  • Formal Bid
  • Informal Quote

Contracts are awarded for best value based on a combined analysis of price, compatibility to State Fund’s requirements, quality, timely delivery and past performance. Awards are final, non-negotiable, and confidential. It is State Fund policy that we not reveal to a participant why they won or lost a proposal or bid.

After a selection of vendor has been made, we will extend a purchase order and/or contract.

Purchase Order or Contract numbers are required for all purchases. Invoices without purchase order numbers will be returned to the vendor.
