Stage 1: Need Identification
The procurement process begins with the identification of a purchasing need. For example, the APO/CUPO may receive a request directly from an end user to establish a contract for certain needed services. SPD may determine establishment of a statewide contract would best serve multiple state entities sharing a common purchasing need. Whatever the purchasing need may be, there are a few critical preliminary steps the procurement professional must complete as described in the Georgia Procurement Manual.
