Faculty and staff are responsible for identifying the goods/services required to conduct business daily. They use the Preferred Suppliers where it best fits their needs and seek out additional sources of supply where it makes the most sense to do so when a Preferred Supplier is not available. When the value of a potential transaction reaches $25,000, employees are required to seek out competitive bids for the goods or services.


Suppliers who receive a bid solicitation from Rice University are encouraged to carefully read the solicitation and respond only if they can meet the minimum requirements listed in the bid solicitation.
