While the COSTARS Supplier Guide addresses COSTARS-exclusive contract participation, suppliers may also do business with COSTARS members through the use of certain statewide agency contracts. For more information regarding statewide agency contracts participation, please visit the Department of General Services (DGS) Bureau of Procurement Web page.
All DGS contracts through which LPPUs and state-affiliated entities may make purchases including COSTARS-exclusive contracts and specific statewide agency contracts are part of the COSTARS Program.
DGS requires eligible LPPUs and state affiliated entities to register as COSTARS members, and only those organizations registered with DGS may purchase from contract. CONTRACTORS AGREE TO SELL CONTRACT ITEMS OR SERVICES TO DGS-REGISTERED COSTARS MEMBERS.
