Special note regarding materials and consumables
If a GDDP project involves the supply of something of the same class as, or serving as a replacement for, something the City already uses under an existing supply contract, the GDDP supply shall represent no more than one percent of the City’s total usage so it does not adversely impact the City’s existing vendors and legal contracts.
