PURCHASING & SOLICITATIONS
SAHA encourages the participation of Minority-Owned Business Enterprises (MBE), Women-Owned Business Enterprises (WBE), Small Business Enterprises (SBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) through direct sales by subcontracting or a business partnership agreement.
All solicitations will be advertised in local papers, on our procurement webpage and on nahro.economicengine.com. We want to do business with companies who will deliver quality products and workmanship at a competitive price.
Purchases in an aggregate of up to $2,000 and $50,000 require an informal solicitation. The purchasing staff will issue a scope of work or list of items required and will solicit a minimum of three written quotes.
Purchases in an aggregate of $50,000 or more require a formal Invitation for Bids Request for Proposals, or Request for Qualifications. These solicitations will be advertised in local papers and posted on SAHA’s website and at ha.internationaleprocurement.com or publicpurchase.com.
SAHA’s Procurement Department is responsible for all of the agency’s procurement activities. It purchases goods and services, implements procurement guidelines, solicits bids, initiates requests for proposals, issues purchase orders and establishes contracts for construction, maintenance, consultant and professional services.
