Instructions for Obtaining Quotes and Placing Purchase Orders

The following needs to be completed, once a DIR Customer identifies a deliverables-based service that coincides with a DataCom Design Group category:


1. Submitting a SOW

A SOW is drafted and could be sent to numerous vendors for a particular category. The SOW itself must be unique and identifiably separate from other SOW for other projects. In it, there must be a description of specific deliverables, review, qualifying and selection criteria, levels of acceptable services and descriptions of expectations regarding minimum deliverable requirements.

DBITS Statement of Work (SOW)


2. Selection and Negotiation

After the noted review, qualification and selection process, the awarded Vendor and Client collaborate to complete the SOW and negotiate requirements and pricing. DIR Clients also have the opportunity to entertain offers from other qualified vendors, during this stage.


3. Final SOW is Signed

Upon finalizing negotiations, agreements are established with a final SOW. This document is signed by company signatories of both parties.

SOW Requirement:

Must not exceed $10,000,000. This includes all renewals, extensions and change orders.


4. Commencing Work

Work is commenced, once the vendor has received a Purchase Order that the DIR customer has issued. The vendor then invoices the DIR customer.
