3. Supplies and Equipment

PIs/PDs are responsible for ensuring that expendable supplies and permanent equipment purchased for the sponsored award are used exclusively and solely to advance the programmatic purpose of the award. See OMB Circular A-110, Property Standards and Procurement Standards.

PIs/PDs are responsible for ensuring that appropriate cost and pricing analyses are done so that the purchases provide for the best price and value. For procurements expected to cost at least $35,000, PIs/PDs are expected to follow UNH’s competitive bid process.

To the fullest extent practicable, PIs/PDs should use small businesses, minority-owned firms, and women’s business enterprises. See OMB Circular A-110, item 43 in the Procurement Standards section for more information.
