The Procurement Department is responsible for the procurement of all commodities, services, professional services, real property, construction, and any other goods or services for the JTA. The department is supported by professional staff that follow established policies and procedures based on city, state, and federal regulations and guidelines.
Request for Bid (RFB): a solicitation, including all documents utilized for the solicitation, by JTA for goods or services where the award, if any, is to be made to the lowest responsible and responsive respondent.
Request for Proposal (RFP): a solicitation in which JTA describes its needs in terms of performance standards or criteria for one or more elements of the solicitation and respondents are requested to provide (in addition to price or economic consideration, if applicable) descriptions and specifications of the goods and services which meet or exceed the criteria or standards specified or identifies a problem to be addressed by respondents.
Sole Source (SS): the only existing source of an item which meets the needs of the User Department as determined by a reasonably thorough analysis of the marketplace.
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
The JTA Procurement Department works closely with the DBE program. DBE’s should register with the DBE Office. Any DBE related inquiries should be directed to DBE1@jtafla.com.
