This procurement was originally erroneously advertised as a bid. When the error was discovered the actual procurement was done through this RFP. However, the award was mistakenly advertised as being against the bid. Because the award has been advertised several times in the Bulletin, we have cancelled this RFP so this procurement will not continue to show on our reports as unawarded. (Submitted by Thomas L. Gardner, State Purchasing Officer.)
