Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas appreciates your interest in doing business with us. As a non-profit and quasi-governmental entity, we are required to use various procurement methods for most services.
The procurement of all goods and services is conducted in a manner providing full and open competition consistent with Federal Uniform Administrative Requirements, and the Texas Workforce Commission Financial Manual for Grants and Contracts (FMGC).
Micro-Purchases (Up to $10,000)
Within the Micro Purchase method, purchased goods are less than the threshold amount of $10,000. Micro-purchases may be awarded without soliciting competitive quotations, if considered reasonable WFSDallas follows the micro purchase threshold outlined in TWC’s FMGC in the aggregate. WFSDallas will adhere to the threshold amount updated in the FMGC at the time of purchase. All purchases must be reasonable, necessary, and allocable.
Small Purchase Method (Up to $250,000)
Within the Small Purchase method, purchased goods exceed the micro-purchase threshold amount of $10,000 but not more than an annual aggregate of $250,000. This procurement method permits the collection of competitive bids based on specifications/description of goods or services and other requirements solicited. Bids or pricing must be obtained from an adequate number (at least two) of qualified sources.
The small purchase method of procurement permits the collection of price and rate quotations through informal means, such as documented phone quotes, advertisement, catalog pricing, and Internet pricing. Small purchase procedures are appropriate when: a) purchasing goods or services for which the aggregate cost does not exceed the simplified threshold b) price is the overriding factor and can easily be compared, c) delivery is standardized, and d) performance outcomes are not dependent on the content of the goods or services procured. For this reason, it is suited for purchases where specifications can be made in advance and award can be made based on lowest price.
Competitive Negotiation Method ($250,000 +)
The Competitive Negotiation method must be used in soliciting goods or services which involve other considerations than cost. These are purchases costing $250,000 or more in the annual aggregate. Using this method of procurement, a variety of other considerations besides cost influence the final procurement decision. These include, but are not limited to, quality of service, demonstrated experience and effectiveness with services or goods, qualifications, program design, curriculum, ability to meet performance measures. This competitive procurement process may result in long-term commitments.
