Strategic or preferred vendors from the list should be used unless there is a compelling reason to use a new vendor.

Small Business Development
The Procurement and Contracts Department works actively to support the University's commitment to provide equal opportunities through contracting and individual order opportunities for small businesses. Purchasing makes every effort to ensure that the University includes the maximum practical number of small businesses in the competitive bidding process in compliance with the University's policies and procedures.
Contractors, consultants, and suppliers must observe the highest ethical standards during the procurement process and during performance of contracts. Accordingly, Khalifa University may reject a proposal for award if it considers that the recommended contractor, consultant or supplier has engaged in unethical practices (including corrupt, fraudulent or coercive practices) and may declare a firm or company ineligible to be awarded a contract if at any time University determines that the firm or company has engaged in such practices in competing for, or in performing, a contract with Khalifa University. Contractors, consultants, and suppliers have to declare any potential conflict of interest as soon as it is discovered and report it to Khalifa University.
Contractors, consultants and suppliers shall respect Khalifa University’s confidentiality obligations as specified in the tender documents.
