Requesting Entity: Department of Health (DOH)

Issues Concern: General Support Services; Multi-year Contracts



Whether general support services other than security and janitorial services may be entered into through a multi-year contract facility.

Section 2 of the Guidelines on the Procurement of Security and Janitorial Services (Guidelines) explicitly states that it shall not be applicable to other general support services such as repair and maintenance of equipment and furniture, trucking, hauling, and other services. The Guidelines only state that multi-year contracts shall be applicable to the procurement of janitorial and security services.
