PREAPPROVED VENDOR INFORMATION
Preapproved Vendor List Miss. Code Ann. § 27-104-7 reconstituted the Public Procurement Review Board (hereinafter "PPRB") on January 1, 2018. Pursuant to this statute, the PPRB "may establish a preapproved list of providers of various personal and professional services for set prices with which state agencies may contract without bidding or prior approval from the board." As the need arises, the PPRB establishes Lists of Preapproved Providers of Services for use by state agencies and entities under the purview of the PPRB (hereafter "agencies").
Preapproved Vendor List (hereinafter "PVL") are selected through competitive bidding or Invitations for Bids, in which the state is divided into eight regions. After a PVL is established, agencies may select and contract with vendors from the list, avoiding the need for procurement. Contracts over $75,000.00 must still be approved by the PPRB. This page contains links to information about the eight regions, services available, and preapproved vendors of those services. OPSCR has developed contract templates that may be used when contracting with a provider on a PVL. These templates are available below.
