gpm archives policies and official announcements
The Georgia Procurement Manual (GPM) provides operational and administrative rules derived from the laws set forth by Georgia code. The rules are an authorized legal extension, bearing the same weight, significance and effect as Georgia law.
The GPM is updated annually for the convenience of its users and in accordance with changes in Georgia laws and to implement improvements to procedures. Between annual updates, the State Purchasing Division might issue Official Announcements to provide procedural and informational guidelines and instructions. Official Announcements might result in revisions to the GPM. The purpose of the GPM is to:
- Make as consistent as possible the procurement regulations among the various state agencies.
- Provide for increased public confidence in the procedures followed in public procurement.
- Foster effective broad-based competition within the free enterprise system.
You can access a searchable version of the GPM by clicking the Georgia Procurement Manual online to search by topic, or you can access and print the PDF version below. You can also review archived versions of the GPM (PDF versions only) and related Official Announcements. Use the "Sort by" drop-down list to sort by Date or Alphabetically.
