6450 - Purchase of Services ## Purchase Of Services
Services will be purchased in a manner consistent with the Avery County Board of Education’s purchasing goals. Competitive bidding is not required for the purchase of services; however, contracts for services will be made under conditions which foster competition among potential providers when feasible and after careful pricing.
No contract may be entered into with a restricted company, as listed by the state treasurer in accordance with G.S. 147, art. 6E or 6G, except as permitted by those laws.
This policy does not apply to contracts for architectural, engineering, surveying, and construction management at risk services, which are governed by policy 9110, Use and Selection of Architects, Engineers, Surveyors, and Construction Managers At Risk.
