PRO-401 Basic Contract Eligibility

Section​ ​Title



    The scope of this policy is to define the minimum eligibility criteria for state contracts under various circumstances.


    The following factors must be validated by state agencies to ensure contracts are only awarded to eligible contractors. Individual agencies may have additional eligibility requirements, such as but not limited to those tied to federal uniform guidance, applicable licensure, etc..

    Agencies are responsible for ensuring compliance at the time of entering into the contract, and for the duration of the agreement.

    Certification of Collection of Sales and Use Tax

    Regardless of dollar amount, agencies will not enter into any contract or order with a person, or an affiliate of that person, who are not registered, collecting and remitting Wisconsin sales or use tax on sales of tangible personal property or taxable services in Wisconsin. See PRO-415, Vendor Collection of Sales and Use Tax; Agency Tax Exemption and Payments of Certain Taxes.

    All suppliers awarded state contracts over the Contract Compliance threshold must submit affirmative action plans. See PRO-403, Non-Discrimination and Contract Compliance and PRO-101, Procurement Definitions and Thresholds.
