Statewide IT Procurement Office

The Statewide IT Procurement Office establishes processes, specifications, and standards for IT products and services that are purchased, licensed, or leased by state agencies and educational entities.

Our goal is to deliver efficient, responsive, and cost-effective IT procurement services while providing government entities with technology that meets their needs. The Office develops and manages statewide contracts that can be used by all State agencies and governmental entities, and approves contracts applicable to individual business needs of the State. Each year, we review hundreds of solicitations and authorize government organizations to award technology goods and services that help them serve the citizens of North Carolina.

This process helps organizations get the best value for their purchases, allows the State to aggregate demand, and supports vendors in competing for business opportunities. The Statewide IT Procurement Office also provides training to government procurement professionals on IT procurement laws and best practices to help them perform their job duties in keeping with all related rules, policies and procedures.

Exceptions

In cases where current or future information technology operations cannot achieve compliance with established information technology laws, policies, standards, or practices, an exception must be documented, submitted, and receive prior approval pursuant to NCGS § 143B-1320(c)-(d).

These guiding authorities include, but are not limited to, North Carolina General Statutes, Session Laws, Executive Orders, North Carolina Administrative Code, the Statewide Information Security Manual, North Carolina Procurement Manual, Statewide IT Term Contracts, and standards set through authority granted to the SCIO.
