EXPRESS PRODUCTS LISTS (EPLS) AND COOPERATIVE PURCHASING AGREEMENTS

​​EPLs are multi-vendor awards that meet Mississippi requirements for legal purchases.  The use of EPLs is governed under Rule 206.2: 011-030  Procurement Instruments: Express Products Lists (EPLs) as stated in the ITS Procurement Handbook.  EPL Interactives are searchable forms of the Express Products Lists.​

​EPL RFP Reference  Information​ - For Vendors
ITS Express Products Lists Requests For Proposal (RFPs) are usually cyclical in nature.  When one EPL RFP expires, it is usually replaced by a new RFP.  Some EPL RFPs also allow for mid-cycle updates.  For these reasons, these RFPs will remain available for download for vendor or client reference.  Vendors may choose to use these RFPs for planning for the next cycle. ​
