Exempt Purchases

Exempt commodities or services do not require competitive bidding. 

The State Exempt List is specific and lists exemptions in terms of commodity codes or NIGP codes. (NIGP is the National Institute of Government Purchasing). Only the items (and codes) listed are exempt. Related or similar items are not exempt if they are not listed.

If you have any questions or are unsure as to whether a commodity or service is exempt, please send an e-mail to for assistance.
