The Office of General Services Design & Construction (D&C) Group
awards approximately 500 emergency contracts annually. Emergency contracts
may be awarded for as much as $300,000. Bids for emergency contracts may be
taken over the phone, require an immediate response and performance of the work.
Emergency contracts are of short duration and are usually awarded on a cost plus basis.

who are interested in bidding on emergency work by trade interest and
geographical area. Bids will be solicited from this list on a rotational basis.
It is anticipated that qualified contractors expressing an interest in emergency
work will be solicited.
It is the policy of the state and the Office of General Services to encourage
minority business enterprise participation in the Emergency Program.

outlined in the Emergency Contract Bidders List Requirements and are
