The State Procurement Code governs the way procurements take place. The intent of the code is to ensure that state expenditures are based on open competition and documented justification when competition is not available.
The state’s preferred method for procurement is through competition. Competition takes place through Invitation to Bid (ITB) or Request for Proposals (RFP).
As a vendor to the state, you must compete for the business. It is important to understand the scoring used for various purchases. Some are based on lowest price while others have factors for determining the selection of a vendor.
The document entitled “Purchasing Guide State Purchasing Division State of New Mexico”, although dated, is the most current publication to help vendors understand procurement in New Mexico.
State of New Mexico Active Procurements
The State Purchasing Division at General Services Department (GSD) is dedicated to obtaining the best value for good and services while staying in compliance with the NM procurement code. While GSD is involved in many procurements, agencies have leeway and can conduct their own procurements. It is therefore important to check agencies websites to see if they are posting procurement opportunities that are applicable to your business.
