When a University department sponsors or plays a supporting role in the delivery of a conference and has related procurement actions, purchasing may either be a competitive process or may be considered a sole source depending on the circumstances. If a conference has sufficient justification to be considered a sole source, the sponsoring University department must provide proper documentation to the Procurement Office justifying the reason(s) for the sole source procurement
