The requisitioner may choose to gather quotes
themselves, or Purchasing can obtain quotes for them. A generic "Request
for Quotation" form can be used to obtain quotes
from various vendors. This form (in MS Word format) can be
downloaded from the Employee Resource Page of the Purchasing
web site for your convenience, or copies of the form can
be obtained by calling Purchasing.
When you are asked to obtain quotes and specifications
from vendors, do not share pricing
from one vendor with other vendors. This is not legal within the rules of
MCCD or state statutes. Only after a Purchase Order is issued
to a vendor can prices from other vendors be shared.
To request assistance in obtaining quotes, please call the
appropriate buyer. A Buyer Directory listing
the buyers, their telephone numbers, and the categories of
products and services they purchase is available online,
or call Purchasing to obtain a copy.
With all purchases over $2,500 to under $50,000, the Purchasing
Department retains the option of obtaining additional quotes.
